Hello Community!


At first i need to say my english is bad so i explain it the best way i can.


I have Following problem:


For 2 Day´s ago i deletet my completly harddisk.I installed a completly new Original Windows version (Windows 8 Pro).I installed Windows new becaus my Graphiccard was Overheated in my game "Verdun".So i hope this card is not destroyed.Its a very good card.

Now after i installed Windows the system the Toolmanager doesnt recognizes my Graphic-card.

The toolmanager shows me only a "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" and not my R9 290 like before.

What can i do that Windows accept my card...i tryed a lot to get this working and searched the completly internet but nothing helped me.

I hope someone here can help me.....And i repeat its really possible that my card is destroyed because overheating , but i dont really know.

After i installed windows is "everything" deleted...driver etc...

I dont know what to do anymore...

Hope to get help
