Sapphire Radeon RX460 2GB DDR5 Driver problems

Question asked by ldr on Feb 9, 2017

Dear Sirs and madams,


I have a problem regarding my new Sapphire Radeon RX 460 2Gb Overclocked (UPC-A Code 840777075364 for the exact model).


I changed my old Nvidia GTX 550 Ti for the model above. Quick question in advance: this RX 460 gets its power alone from the Motherboard right?

(because I have not found a connector for the 6 pin power cable)


I deleted the old driver software of Nvidia and installed the drivers for the Radeon model. I downloaded the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition from the official AMD Website and tried to install it but it failed during the process with the message: "the drivers were installed partly". I looked around on the web and tried to install an older driver software (16.11.5) but the installation failed too.


I tried to start a few games to test the graphic card but after some seconds ( I tried with the CoD MW series and Fear ( a game from 2005!) but the screen turned black, and after some seconds the game either froze or went on but said problem occured again.)


I also tried to follow the guide on the website but I still did not manage to solve the problem...

It would really help me if you could write a step-by-step instruction because as you can see my english is not the best.



Thanks in advance for your help I really appreciate it.
