MSI R9 270X - Black Screen after Win7 logo
« on: 03-December-14, 17:20:33 »

Hello there.

About a week ago I upgraded my PC, buying several components and putting it to work. Here's the specs.

Main Board: M5A97 EVO R2.0
Bios Version: Latest
Video Card: MSI Radeon R9 270X TwinFrozr OC Edition 2Gb
PSU: Don't know
12v rail Rating of listed PSU:
CPU: AMD FX 8350 4.0Ggz BE SkAM3+
Memory: 8Gb Crucial Ballistix DDR3-1600Mhz
SSD/ HDD: Western Digital WD10EZRX-00A8LB0 1TB
CPU COOLER: The one that came with the CPU
Raid Card: Onboard
Sound Card: Onboard
OC: (Yes / No) Don't know
Operating System: Win 7 SP 1 64

So, it worked just fine for about 3 days. Last Saturday night I tried to open Google Chrome after some gaming and the the system froze. I got a screen with vertical black and white stripes. I had to reboot the system and it gave me a black screen, crashing again, after the Win Logo at start up. At this time I was running either 14.7 or 14.9 ATI drivers.
I could only start the PC on Safe Mode. Removing the drivers and getting Windows general VGA card settings would allow me to use Windows in normal mode though. Once I installed the Graphic Card's drivers it crashed on reboot, always with the black screen after Win logo. I installed several ATI drivers, namelly 14.9, 14.11 beta, 13.12... and nothing worked.
I flashed the Mother Board BIOS to the latest version, formatted the HDD doing a fresh install of Win 7, installed Catalyst first and then the drivers, the drivers without catalyst, etc. and nothing worked, always getting a black sreen on reboot once the Graphic Card's drivers were installed. I even swapped the Graphic Card to a different slot to no avail.

Right now I'm using my old Radeon HD 5670 with the latest drivers and everything works just fine. It even works fine if I keep both Graphic Cards installed with the monitor plugged to the older card. I find this odd since to do so, Windows loads both cards drivers with no errors. But once I switch to the new card everything goes black.

Can someone help me out? I've tried to contact my vendor's technical support through mail but they're not answering. I fear that I'll have to report it as DOA and swap it out, which will take quite some time taking into consideration the way things tend to work around here.

EDIT - I don't have a 2nd system to test it on.

Driver 14.9 has bsod and balck screen known issue and 14.9.1 Beta solved it. I just wonder if it's driver issue and not clean uninstall...Don't try 14.9 anyways.

Nope. Not driver issue at all. I tested at least 3 different drivers, all with the same result. Besides, I used both Driver Fusion and Driver Cleaner and CClean to remove any non-deleted registry entries. Always got the same problem. Went as far as formating the drive and doing a clean Win install. The problem persisted.

Tried installing drivers without Catalyst to no avail. Tried installing Cataltst first and then the drivers. Nothing. It always crashed omce the drivers were installed.

I don't have another computer to test it on. I don't know if it works. I know that it worked on this one for 3 days and started crashing without new hardware. I know it crashes in both PCIe slots. I know that myvold graphic works on this machine.

The PSU is a Nox Urano TX 850W.
