    Default New GPU black screen with overclock

    Hi there,

    I have recently upgraded my HD7970 to an R9 290 trix oc.

    Unfortunatly now every time i apply an overclock i get a blank screen on reboot.

    The only way to recover it is to power down remove the GPU and connect the DVI to the mobo directly.
    Boot and then remove the overclock.
    Reinstall the GPU and then its fine.
    The only change was the GPU then thinking it might be the PSU got a new one but the problem remains :)
    Any ideas???

    Wouldn't be easier to go to Safe mode, anyway what app do you use to OC?
    Did you use DDU-Display Driver Uninstaller? If not you should...

    Didnt not even post to get it into safe mode.
    Was just using a software oc the easytune 6 worked fine when i had the other card in but not with this one.
    Having worked on it all afternoon i have manual oc'd it and its working fine must of just been the stupid easytune.

    Actually methinks you have OCed your card beyond its limitation. Dial it back for your own good. I could rant on about how a 7970 vs. trips 290's but what's the point. I would have already figured that out before purchase...
