    Games not working in DX9/DX11/OpenGL since 17.4.4 on RX 460 in a DVI Monitor.


      AMD Graphics Card

      PowerColor RX 460 2GB


      Operating System

      Windows 10 Creator's Edition 64bit

      Driver version installed

      Radeon ReLive 17.5.1 and 17.4.4

      Display Devices

      Samsung Syncmaster P2270 DVI-DVI 1920x1080 @59Hz


      ASUS M5A78L-M LX


      FX-6100 3.3GHZ

      Power Supply Unit

      OCZ 430W


      8GB Corsair Vengeance


      Since 17.4.4 No games working in DX9/DX11 or OpenGL. Tried various games like Assassins Creed Revelations for DX9, Rage for OpenGL and Battlefield 1/Sherlock Holmes - The Devil's Daughter on DX11 but don't start. Only a small box displaying problems to iniciate DX9/11 and close to desktop.

      On OpenGL displays: "No valid monitors found" an error similar to this guy: FATAL ERROR: No valid monitors found. :: DOOM General Discussions

      Tried to check triple buffering on OpenGL since i read in some boards on game settings but not worked.

      People says that using a hdmi cable resolved in this case, but my monitor is dvi, and in 17.3.2 everything works flawless. OpenGL included that is broken since 17.4.2., but DX games started to broken since 17.4.4 and 17.5.1 not working either.


      What happened? This issue is already known? I bought an RX 400 series hoping a good support for a new product, but in 6 months already having this kind of bug was really weird. I hope a good solution, because 17.3.2 mass effect andromeda is really slow.

          Anyone help? I see others having the same problem. No games launch after the update like this: No game will launch after 17.3.3 driver update  .

          I really want to upgrade to the newest drivers, but i used DDU on security mode and didn't help. The 17.3.3 is the most stable on my rx 460 at least. Seems that the AMD staff doesn't care for such a huge problem like this. I used to have an NVIDIA card, and never had such a extreme bug like this in such 8 years.

            Please try updating your DX components. If the issue continues, please use the last working driver and wait for our next update.

            Download DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010) from Official Microsoft Download Center

                The problems aren't from DX. I already use the last one. This driver 17.4.4 and 17.5.1 doesn't launch any games. I only said DX9, DX11 and OpenGL to show that is not an especific issue, is a global that affects every games to launch. Last 17.3.2 and 17.3.3 are the last stable on that works everything, so directX problem is discarded. I hope the next driver fix this issue, i'm seeing that is a common issue on this board. I saw several cases, includes RX480 and RX580 here.

                    I can confirm that the issue is related to the DVI output of the card. I have an Sapphire R9 290X Tri-X OC. My games and MPC-HC does not work when I plug my monitor into the DVI port. The workaround is to use the HDMI or DisplayPort output of the card, this is >working< for me.


                    So plugging the monitor into HDMI or DisplayPort will work! Anyway, it is really annoying that the DVI output broken on a high-end graphics card after a driver update.

                    Reverting back the driver to version 17.3 or 17.2 fixes this issue too but lacks the optimizations for new games.
