    AMD Driver has crashed and recovered, black screen on boot


    I've recently fixed my blue screen, but now this error comes up. It comes up regardless of intense activity or not. I have an Gigabyte R9 270x, and I'm using the 14.7 beta drivers. I'm on Windows 8.1 64 bit. I've tried reinstalling drivers; it works, but only if my computer stays on. When my computer turns off overnight, the problem reoccurs in the morning.

    Any help is appreciated!

    THINGS I'VE ALREADY TRIED:
    Reinstalling new drivers, and older ones
    Reinstalling Windows
    RMA'ing my actual GPU, and Gigabyte said nothing was wrong with it

    EDIT:
    I'm now using old 14.9 drivers.
    I'm getting a new problem. On boot, my screen goes black, however I can still see and move the cursor.

    UPDATE: I installed the newest drivers instead of the beta ones. The problem is gone. I will mark this as solved if the issue is gone for a day or two.

    Good for you, never trust Beta of anything in any form. Always go for the real thing.

    Now there is another problem. After logging onto my PC, the screen goes black, and the fans on my GPU goes 100%. Then the screen flickers back to my desktop, then fans go back to normal. This repeats endlessly. Has anyone heard of this problem?

    Is this happening just at boot or continuously afterward and how many watts is your PSU. Knowing the make and model of your computer would help.
    Did you get your driver from here:

    It was happening just at boot. I don't know if I would happen afterwards because I could never get past that cycle. I installed the old 14.9 drivers, and I am able to log onto my PC. Let's see how far we can go without crashes.
    I have a 500 watt PSU, and I built this PC myself.

    How do you uninstall older drivers ? Suggest using Download Display Driver Uninstaller - MajorGeeks in safe mode, it clens them up good.

    Yeah, I'm using DDU in safe mode to uninstall them. Sometimes on boot, the GPU doesn't send a signal to my monitor and I'm forced to reinstall the GPU via device manager.

    UPDATE: After logging in my PC, the screen goes black with the mouse cursor visible and movable.

    Any graphics settings in BIOS that may help get it going? Can you use the Intel graphics if the card is pulled? Would help to know more about your system.

    Yep, I'm actually using the Intel graphics right now, and it's working just fine. What do you want to know more about?
