I have a weird problem that has been plaguing me for a couple of months now, and I am unsure how to resolve it. I have tried quite an extensive series of troubleshooting steps without success, so am reaching out to smarter people than I for assistance.
In a nutshell, when I install a new AMD driver, during the installation the monitors goes black and after a moment I see "No signal detected." At this point nothing short of a reboot will bring my OS back.
Further, if (after a successful install - more on this in a moment) I toggle Crossfire On/Off the same thing happens.
So my system is as follows:
ASUS Z170 Deluxe Motherboard
4 x 8GB Corsair Dominator Platinum 2666MHz Memory Modules
2 x ASUS Strix R9 Fury Direct CU III GPUs
Intel Core i7 6700K CPU
3 x BenQ XL2730Z 144Hz Freesync Monitors
BeQuiet! Dark Power 11 850W PSU
I can get drivers installed, if I:
- Disconnect the power from the GPU#2
- Boot in to Windows.
- Install the drivers.
- Power off.
- Re-connect the GPU#2 power.
From there I can boot in to Windows and all is well. This is what I need to do for every driver release, and every time I wish to disable Crossfire. Which is a total pain and makes my inner-child very sad.
