See if there is an update available for your card, many times that takes care of things.,

Have you gotten any recent updates of any kind?  Sometimes even MS things will rock the boat.

As I'm sure you know, you don't want to rely on Windows Update to properly update your drivers. It best to occasionally go to the manufacturer's website and check for updates. Microsoft has a habit of creating problems instead of solving them.

I got this from a gaming buddy, so guess I'm not alone. I may go have to go get  a nvidia card

"The issue is probably the drivers. I've heard that the R9 280X only works with the latest beta drivers for now, so you could try a rollback but I doubt that'd work. Apparently, multiple people are having problems with these drivers on the R9 280X, so I recommend you just wait it out until new drivers are released if rollback is not an option. Unfortunately, AMD is known for driver issues, though they're usually not so detrimental. Then again, this is a beta driver, so that really explains it."
