I just bought a RX 480 Gaming X 8G, but I can't seem to make it run properly. I'm stuck on a black screen (no input signal) after logging into Windows after I installed the AMD drivers. Windows drivers are working fine.


My specs :


Monitor : BenQ xl2411t

CPU : i5-4670 @ 3.6Ghz

GPU : MSI RX 480 Gaming X 8G

Mobo : MSI Z87-G45 GAMING (bios v1.9)


PSU : Corsair TX650


I tried uninstalling drivers with DDU, tried diffenrent versions of the driver.

I also tried to use PCI-e Gen2 instead of Gen3 but no success.

Tried Windows 7 and Windows 10.

Monitor and GPU connected with Dual-Link DVI.


Thanks for your help, I really need it :/

Issue solved. With this GPU, DVI screws have to be really tightened to work fine. By really, I mean REALLY HARD.
