5850 blackscreen - help please

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a msi 5850 twin frozr, and am really struggling to install a recent driver.

Much of the blame was put upon having an nvidia card previously, but a clean install removed that concern.

I did manage a couple of days ago to get to desktop, but it was a struggle, and i'm not sure which of the many steps I tried actually worked as today none do.

Today, I unplugged network
formatted c: /clean install of win7 pro
inserted my SP1 disk and updated
installed 11-2 catalyst, rebooted to black screen/no input

disabled card (safe mode)
installed 10.12
rebooted to black screen

Seems this is an unusual, but not unheard of problem, Possibly caused by MSI using their own components, but I can't find a solution (other than going back several driver revisions, and I'd prefer the performance enhancements of later revisions).

Card is at stock

thanks, kerian, but I'm using the card right now via 8.x drivers, it works in games etc..., the only issue is later driver installations?

I don't know what could be the issue if you already tried to do a clean install of Win 7. At this point the drivers should be working whatever version it is.

Did you tried to flash your MB bios ? Did you install MB drivers after the clean install of Win 7 ?
Tried different PCI-E slot ?
Is there any chance your chipset hasn't his drivers up to date ?

MB bios is latest (couple of years old)
all other drivers now installed, including intel (chipset/matrix)
runs happily on 8.x driver, just re-tried with 12.x and needed to pop into safemode and rollback driver as it didn't work.

UPDATE.

It appears I can run recent drivers so long as I'm prepared to go VGA instead of DVI...anyone know why?
(never had a problem with DVI before)
