Hello okayI have a problem. Here's what happened. I have AMD Radeon HD6870 in my computer. I added a Radeon  R9 290 X. I booted up the computer and after the bios screen loaded the computer shut down. So I took the R9 290 X out of the computer. I turn it on and it does the same thing. I took out the HD 6870. The computer seems to stay running but I can't tell if it was loading up Windows because there's no onboard video. So I went and found an old PCI video card that doesn't have external power connections. The computer boots up and load Windows. The power supply was a 750 W power supply. Could having both video cards fried the power supplies video card outputs. Or could the new card have been faulty and fried the old card through the PCI? I had the HD 6870 on the number one port and the R9 on the number three port. if it fried the power supply would 1000 W be okay to use.

You tried to run two different crossfire GPUs together, or to different pairs of crossfire GPUs?

lol i found the problem wasnt the video cards. i had knocked the cpu cooler loose. cleaned it put new compound on it and it stoped shutting down.

but the new r9 290 is dead have an asus sabetoth bord on it is led lights for different sections of the bord. thay flash on then off during bootup testing each section. when i put the r9 290 in the computer the vga test led stays on during bootup and the computer dousend boot up just stops. when i use just the old hd card it bootsup fine.

Do you have the proper drivers for the graphics cards?

 

If you do, then I would be inclined to say that the cards have failed.
