    Installing RX 580 - Black screen on boot

    jambajamba

      Hi, i know there are many topics similar to this, but the issue i have is a black screen on boot after installing my new Sapphire RX 580 Limited Edition 8GB

       

      My old GPU is RX 290X so i have the latest AMD Crimson installed. I used to have 2 of these at the same time.

       

      My motherboard does not have any on board VGA or display connections, crazy i know! So when i plug the new RX 580 i cannot login to windows to install the new drivers to recognise the card. I plugged the HDMI in but no signal just black screen. Will try DVI and DP tomorrow. I also have not touched the switch i am leaving as is out of the box.

       

      1) What is the best way to install the correct drivers for the RX 580? Should i uninstall Crimson, connect the new card, then let the winds of fury unleash on the installation?

       

      My current set up is

      AMD FX - 6350 (plan to upgrade soon)

      Gigabyte Motherboard

      32 GB ram

      Corsair 750W

       

      I know the RC 580 runs on the above.

      Any tips would be great, thanks.
