Hi,

 just bought a R9 290x Matrix graphics card. After installing the card I updated the driver with the disc the card came with. Installation was succesfull and after rebooting the screen became black after the Starting windows screen. I found solutions on the internet that the driver was malfunctioning so I used safe mode to uninstall the driver and used a Driver Sweeper to remove all remaining graphics drivers (just uninstalling without driver sweeper gave me the same problem. I repeated the process with 3 different driver versions (CD, newest Beta and 13.101). Everytime when I deinstall the driver it boots just fine, but everytime I install the ADM driver I get the black screen again. I also used another version of driver sweeper but nothing. Im running out of ideas.


Im running Windows 7 64bit.

Thanks in advance

i just got a r7 240, and installed it, and have the same problem, used the drivers on the disc, same problem, used the newest driver, still same. FX6350, asus M5A99fx pro, 8gb ram, win 7 64bit all updates, it should have been an easy install but it has been all trouble, so back to the old card till i figure it out.

Hi,

I've got the exact same problems. I've tried everything I could think off, but I am at wit's end.

CD Driver works fine, but its Catalyst 13.6, not really made for the R9 280X, but 13.10 and 13.11 b9.5 wont let me get past the "Windows is starting" part. It's black screen after that with my screen still on.

I tried 2 PCIe slots. Different Screens. Installed Service Pack 1. Updated everything. Reinstalled Windows 7 and uninstalled everything. Flashed my BIOS ( Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R ). Checked my ATX Plugs, but everything is fine.

When I tried to install Catalyst 13.11 b95 my screen turned black and the sound of "Hardware Removed" played.

 

I hope somebody can help us.
