Blackscreen and fanstop at driver installation and at booting Windows even on a "vanilla" system.
Yes, I have seen the numberous threads, but I hoped maybe by now there is another work around than baking the card. Don't really want to do that.
MSI B350 Gaming Plus
PSU 600W, 32GB RAM
tryed newest Adrenalin Driver
-Chipset driver update
-DISM / SFC
-DDU and reinstall, from installer, from manually selecting and from auto windows choice
-deactivated automatic driver installation
Fresh install of Windows + updates till latest (january)
While installing Fall Creators update, the graphic card stopped working again (even though I deactived automatic drivers?!...), but the system continued to work!
I can confirm this, since it autorebooted as required from the updated and continued normally at 30% or something. After checking the heatsink and waiting for the disk activity LED to cease blinking, I returned to safe mode, restored the basic driver and could see that the 1709 update was installed succesfully.
Still the card stops working when installing a driver.
What i realized it that (since the very beginning) the graphiccard did take quite some time (2sec?) to spin up and put out a signal. But maybe thats normal? Did use a laptop for to long to remember...
To be fair: I bought the card used.
But if someone should have e.g. installed a bad firmware, would it then still work with the basic driver?
Thank you for your precious time in advance.
