Hi all,

 

I just got my XFX R9 380 around a week ago. i had no problems with it until i began overclocking. the OC failed and the screen went blank (did NOT overvolt it) and then i uninstalled the driver and reinstalled the driver. so then some games kept on crashing but now i get BSOD messages that all relate to driver problems.

 

if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated

 

cheers,

hman out

Do a restore back to before you installed the new hardware and reinstall things(without the OC). then see if things re-occur.  If it still blanks or BSOD, the OC has damaged a chip on the MOBO.  Not the first I've seen toasted from OC.  I have researched sources and devices to repair and even upgrade those faulty chips.  Resurrection depends on parts and a skilled tech.  Expensive and easier on the pocketbook to replace the MOBO.  Many peripheral chips are running at the max tested specs and an OC can push them beyond their specs.  MOBOs with the OC options should have devices tested to the OC limits of the board.

The problem is, I dont have a restore point. I think I may have fixed it by chkdsk/f
