I have recently purchased an R9 290 tri X OC 4GB edition. I have installed the card and all went well.
However installing AMD's latest omega drivers 14.12 and the latest beta drivers causes my system to black screen only when restarted.
I can turn on the PC and game perfectly fine and turn off the PC at the end of my gaming session fine. It only happens when choosing to "Restart" the machine and right after the windows logo but before showing me the accounts to login to, this only happens if i have drivers installed, removing the drivers OR GPU stops the issue and my system restarts perfectly fine.
I am running windows 8.1 pro
I have read so many forums and links on google but none seem to exhibit this exact issue, they all seem to refer to black screening ingame but this is fine in game for me and i have no issues with gaming performance.
So far i have tried:
Removing all AMD drivers/software then cleaning up with 3d GURU driver uninstaller in safe mode. Re installing driver only and none of the other software.
Tried as above with Beta drivers
Tried as above with 14.9 drivers
Tried as above with 13.12 drivers
All of them causes the system to fail to warm boot. With no problems cold booting.
I did read something about the possibility of the voltage not being high enough for this type of card with AMD's drivers but not sure how to find that out/resolve that.
Thanks in advance, any more info needed just give me a shout.
