ASUS R9 280X Black Screen/Problems

Hi guys,

I just built a rig and am having problems with graphics. I either get this mess while booting up, which would lead to no windows login screen:



Or it will let me get into Windows, but crash out when I start a game. It appears as though if I just surf internet and whatnot, it will work fine, but will crash only when I try to play a game.

I've tried various drivers already (both from ASUS and AMD websites) and have the IGD disabled as well. Also have reseated several times. I have two PCI-E 6+2's hooked up to the card.

Build is below. Do you guys have any suggestions? Faulty GPU? Not enough juice from PSU? Other?

Thanks in advance.

Yep, reseated it multiple times and also in different slots too.

Yeah, was planning on returning if nothing came up on this thread. Thanks for the response!

Yeah, I've tried using the integrated graphics only and it works fine. I even borrowed a GPU from my brother to test and it worked fine (granted its a GT 430). So yeah, all signs are pointing to the GPU at the moment. Thanks.

Yep, it was the GPU. I picked up another R9 280X today and this one is working out fine so far. Thanks again guys.
