  1. AMD R9 270 failing due to driver issue


    Was using my PC when it unexpectedly crashed. Restarting caused windows to attempt and automatic repair, which does not succeed.

    Booting into Safe Mode does work, and from there, if I reinstall AMD driver software Adrenaline 20.2.2 with factory reset, the computer the reboots into normal mode successfully. However, the display device listed in the device manager will be Microsoft Basic Display Adaptor, with the R9 270 nowhere in site.

    Attempting to install Adrenaline 20.2.2 again results in a forced reboot resulting in the "Attempting automatic repair" and we're back to where we started.

    Running on Windows 10 1909, which is a recent update - if that helps.

    Attempted to use amdcleanuputility to ensure clean install - Didn't help

    Attempted to roll back to an Windows 10 1907 - Didn't work



    Would really appreciate any help in getting this fixed

    :)

    Waterblock for Gigabyte R9 270


    I am currently building a watercooling loop for my PC because I am idling at 59-66 c on my gpu and cpu with fans maxed out. I found everything but a block for my gpu. A r9 270 is basically a 7870 and I found a 7870 waterblock from EK that listed an HIS r9 270 is compatable. Could it work with my card?

    Compatibility list for EK-FC7870 - Nickel | CoolingConfigurator.com

    BTW, I know this is impractical, but I prefer temperatures and silence over practicality.

    AMD drivers causing computer to black screen without a cursor

    Hello krise1,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    What is the make and model of the PC?

    Generally, this issue is caused by incompatible devices. It can also occur due to connection problem with your display, display adapter driver update or due to issues with recent updates or installations. Kindly follow the below
    suggestions and check if it helps.

    Method 1: Boot into Safe Mode.

    If you are unable to boot to the desktop due to black screen, I recommend you to get into safe mode through WinRE. Wherein, safe mode starts Windows in a basic state using limited set of files and drivers. For more information,
    you may refer the article on
    Start your PC in safe mode in Windows 10
    and refer to the suggestions provided under ‘From a black or blank screen’.


    Method 2: Update the Graphics drivers.

    If the latest edition of driver is causing the issue, you may revert to the previous edition and check if the issue persists. To do that,

    • Right click on the Start menu and select
      Device Manager.
    • Locate to Display adapters in Device Manager and expand it.
    • Right click on the driver and click on
      Properties.
    • Select Driver tab and hit on
      Roll Back Driver
      option.

    Else, you can uninstall the latest drivers from the device manager and re-install the old drivers from

    AMD Radeon R9 270 Drivers
    website.

    Additional Information: You may also refer to the article on

    Troubleshoot black screen errors
    for further information.

    Hope it helps.
