I just got a sapphire r9 280x. I'm having a strange problem since installing it though. When I boot my pc I see the bios splash as expected, and then the screen just goes black. I never see the windows boot splash. However windows boots fine; because once I toggle the power on my monitor on/off the windows login screen shows right up and everything works fine. This didn't happen with my previous card (amd 6950).
After power-cycling the monitor after boot everything works 100% fine, its very strange :/
When I got the new card I first completely uninstalled the amd drivers, rebooted the pc, shut down the PC, installed the new card, and then installed the latest catalyst 13.11 beta 9.2 drivers. The drivers appear to work fine aside from this issue. I'm running windows 8.1 64-bit.
