Title: Amd 2xx and 69xx black screen in windows
Post by: Soullessone21 on August 13, 2017, 11:27:35 AM
Noticed for some time now many Amd cards mobile and desktop have stopped working after any drivers are installed.

Once drivers install the screen goes black and never comes back. When you force reboot you see video till the Windows login screen appears which just shows up black.

Just wanted to know if anyone has found any solutions to this?

Thanks

Only with the most recent drivers? I haven't seen it yet, but I haven't done the most recent drivers yet.

No this issue showed up in 2016 and people were calling it amds planned obsolescence. But it's random what cards in the series it affects but as little as one driver update will make the card useless till you find a perfect one that works.
