  1. Ok, so recently i've been reformating my computer and somehow... these reformat are different then the 1 before. It used to have more start up software then now today, i don't know what might have caused or why it happen. I try reformating it again and same result. For some reason the Radeon 9250 series don't seem to work on my computer. Everytime when it reach to the desktop, the screen go idle-like. It's just blank black like the computer is not even turn on. But somehow the mouse function and the keyboard works. I can turn off my computer with the buttons and mouse click works. Just my screen goes blank black. Might there be some software i'm missing that cause this problem?

    Umm yes the drivers

    Anyway, presently the Monitor refresh rate is set too high in Windows (not in the Monitor itself) and therefore it won't display (being above the Monitors max level)

    So you will need to go to Safe mode
    By repeatively pressing the F8 key on Windows initial startup
    Then select Safe Mode
    And log on to an Administrator account

    Then go to Device Manager
    Start-Run-> Devmgmt.msc
    Then remove the Display adaptor device (right click uninstall or remove)
    Then restart to Normal mode again

    Then download the drivers from Radeon support driver page

    That is all
