Recently I purchased club3d R9 290 from ncix. After doing a clean reinstall of win7 64 im having a lot of issues with my display. Im not sure if the card is to blame or my psu.
Here are my system specs:
h81ME mother board
intel 17 4770
Kingston 1333 RAM
25 inch Samsung monitor
500W thermaltake psu (im pretty sure its 80 bronze)
club3d R9 290 (not oc)
R9 290 is rated to have atleast 750W but from what I gathered was its only if you have a “bad” psu would you need that much watts.
Since ive put in that card, ill go through many different issues until finally it boots up nicely (10th or 11th try). Some issues are: the pc will turn on but I cant see anything on screen (just a black screen)
sometimes I get no signal detected
sometimes Ill get weird artifacts and in the background you can see the windows splash screen-it usually then flickers and the screen goes black
Sometimes when I enter the bios screen, the screen is creating weird artifacts with the mouse (as I am moving the mouse around).
One time I turned on the pc and I got this weird screen:
I am thinking its either the video card or a bad psu? This psu was powering amd fx 6100, GeForce 8800gs before. Not sure what to do at this point. I bought the 290 because it was on sale now im regretting it a lot
Oh I have already tried reinstalling windows and same result, tried resitting the gpu and same result. Tested memory on another computer (amd build) and it works fine so Im thinking its not the memory?
Oh and I have updated my video card to the omega version. I did the beta but witnessed a lot more black screen and weird artifacts then switched to omega and its a lot better but still have issues
