    Radeon Vega FE boots to black screen - monitor gets no signal

    marque_pierre

      Brand new setup:

       

      GPU: Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

      Driver: 18.Q1 Pro Enterprise edition

      CPU: Ryzen 7 1800X 8 cores

      RAM: 32GB (2 x 16 GB)

      Mobo: Asus X370-Pro

      Windows 10 64 bit

      Boot drive: Intel 223GB SSD

       

      When I reboot my machine, I cross my fingers and hope for the best. More often than not, the boot after the initial Windows logo, goes to a black screen - monitor complains that it gets no signal - while I can hear that windows is continuing to boot behind the black screen. I assume this is my graphics card failing somehow.

       

      From other forums, like Tom's Hardware, I understand this not a rare occurrence. What's going on?

       

      I have been an Nvidia Quadro user for many years, but healthy competition is good for all of us, right? So I decided to give AMD a try (on both GPU and CPU).

       

      As it stands, I have a machine, I don't dare to turn off or reboot. This is not sustainable. Any suggestions to iron out this flaw?
