Monitor won't wake up - 7950

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have this odd little bug I have never had before (I previously had a MSI 570) I upgraded to a Sapphire 7950.

I don't have hibernation enabled, or sleep enabled. But after 15 minutes, I have it set so my displays turn off until I move my mouse, and then the desktop comes back up.

But ever since I got my 7950, when my monitors go black (sometimes it doesn't happen, and it works) they won't turn back on no matter what I do, and I have to hard reset the PC.

I have already did a fresh install of Windows, so I am thinking it has to be my GPU.


Currently on driver 13.4

Are you on the latest BIOS for your motherboard? Does it do it on different driver versions or have you only tested 13.4? Can you try switching the port on the 7950 that you're connecting up to?

Try to see if it does the same thing with the iGPU, so that you can rule out the AMD GPU.

I have the same issue however it seems to be over a longer period (30 mins-1hr+).

I have trawlled the net and some people believe it may be due to the card going to sleep or power save mode and not re-awakening. First check and disable any power save mode on (CCC) or whatever software you have installed. I had my card overclocked and recently reinstated it back to its factory default values. (I have not re-overclocked it yet to know if that was the cause of the black screen issue)

Id first try disabling the power save options of the card, if this dont work them try and set it back to default value and see how that goes.
