Solved

Just installed new amd drivers and my graphics card wont out-put a display

This is the third time I have tried over 3 years, I then reinstall windows and I try again (I save my data) and again to see if they have fixed this.

When I starting installing AMD drivers and it starts to install the display drivers. My screen goes off and I left it there for about 3 hours. Came back... still off. So I decided to restart my computer. Now it won't output a display. Does anyone know how I can fix this without reinstalling windows?

System:

Windows 8.1 x64

R9 290

i7 2600k

ms 7759 (motherboard)

  1. Just to make sure, is the monitor connected to the GPU output, or the mobo I/O output?

    It is.

    My computer works fine before I install the drivers.

    Ok, so here`s what you need to do for now:
    - remove the GPU
    - reset BIOS by removing the battery from the mobo for 1 minute
    - start up without GPU
    - perform this in order to properly remove the old driver: http://www.overclock.net/t/988215/how-to-remove-your-amd-ati-gpu-drivers
    - shut down, plug in the GPU, boot up and install the driver.

    Thanks. What do you mean by removing the battery from the mobo for 1 minute?
  5. The motherboard has a round battery on it - the Bios battery.
    By removing it and plugging it back in, you reset the bios and your PC should work without a GPU.

    You might also have a Clear CMOS button or jumper, but since this is different on every mobo, the battery removal is the only "classic" option.

    I found quite diff cult to remove the battery from the mobo (cause I am dumb). So is this a vital part? I have done everything else but the last part. I was just wondering if its ok to continue on without doing that. Can I reset the bios in the bios?
