  1. Check for corrupted driver files or uninstall all AMD drivers and download the latest version. Also, try setting your RAM to run at 1600MHz and see if anything changes.

    the one that came with the card from cd And i also tired the one from amd still same problem
  5. So I would assume that Windows did start properly until you rebooted after driver installation? Remove the card and see if you can restore to an earlier point before you installed the card, and make sure to uninstall all AMD drivers. If you can then boot Windows properly, reinstall the card, and if Windows boots properly with the card installed, go to this page here, http://support.amd.com/en-us/download and get the latest driver for your 280X, ignore the driver on the disc that came with your card.

    I don't think your graphics card is defective, it's more than likely a driver error. Use Driver Sweeper to get rid of all AMD drivers, then go get the newest driver from the AMD website. Restoring won't necessarily get rid of all the AMD drivers. Is this a new build? Or was there another graphics card in your system?
