Do users who get Black Screens also get BSOD while watching videos?

load off BS, my system with 1 R9 290X at load barrely uses 400Watts (~375W more accuratly), i7-3770, 7 fans, pump, hd, sdd, dvd, 16 gig ram. so NO it does not need a 750W PSU at all, that would be ample for a X-fire sollution.


just another wild goose chase being offered by manufacturers to get away with it, forcing the customer into a unneeded cost when they decide to chase this goose.

when they say 750 watt, they really mean a PSU with a single or dual rails that can supply 50 or so amps. you need to read between the lines there.

also, that's what it says on the box, but what would make more sense is if they said modern PSU required, or just straight up AMP requirement to really power them.

I figured out the cause of black screens for me. Everytime it clocks down to the 2D even in 3D it's just too low for the elipidia memory to sustain the change and potentially causing damage to the GPU. If you're like me I recommend using something like ASUS tweak and just overclock the 2D settings like 450 core and 300/600mhz memory.

What exactly is meant by "black screen"? Because I never get a black screen while gaming, or even once Windows boots. But from time to time the display will lose signal during boot and the power light just blinks while the screen is black. If it doesn't happen at boot up it won't happen that session. Is this technically a black screen, or something else?

Guess its something else.
"black screen " in this R290,R290X case is that a kind a gpu failure during heavy 3d applications .

Hey guys I have a temporary solution to fix the problem.


If u have a sapphire or another card just download the sofware like sapphire TRIXX or MSI afterburner and put the [VDDC Offset] to 50 and the [Power Limit to +50] it must solve ur black screens.thumb.gif

I did it last week and since 0 black screens!

PD: I had a black screen every 5 minutes since I bought the card.

I have this problem at random times as well, normally it occurs after long periods of idling, sometimes at start up.

I grabbed a ASUS DirectCU II R9 290 a few weeks back and got very strange black screen issues. In games it was pretty stable (didn't get a single black screen) but when I undervolted the GPU core it went immediately black. It was certainly not the voltage that was too low because i just unvervolted it by ~30mV and a GPU failure because of low GPU voltage lets your graphics card crash/freeze/show funny stripes pr triangles and certainly not instant idle black screen -.- (Yes I got the elpdia memory)
The most annoying thing about this was that the black screen persisted after reboot. Just before my windows log in window appeared it went black again. Nothing I could do. Very annoying. This is why I ended up returning the card.
Do you guys know if the newly produced cards still have that problem? I would love to get a R9 290 but I don't want to end up having this issue again...


I am a bit confused by the whole Legacy/UEFI thing. Could anyone explain to me where I switch between these modes?

I have 290x that I received after RMA from a smaller shop in canada and its a press sample because the guy there that runs the place knows me and I always buy gpus there he was sorry for my trouble and sent me what supposedly was golden sample 290x.

Anyways on a brand new pc but using legacy bios I use trixx for +30vddc and +25 power limit along with custom fan profile and had 0 issues so far.
