  1. Hello,

    I bought a R9 270X by XFX. My current specs are:

    CPU: AMD A10 7800k (Standard Clock Speeds, Graphics Disabled)
    RAM: 4GB (2 sticks, both working)
    Motherboard: FM2, Gigabyte
    PSU: 500 watt 80+ Cert Silver
    HDD: 500GB WD Blue

    So the issue is that the R9 card consistenly crashes out of all games no matter if I uninstall the drivers or reinstall them. I have tried removing the drivers through catalyst control center and through application based tools (DisplayDriverUninstaller). Once I uninstall and reinstall, it works, until the computer is restarted and then rinse and repeat.

    Is this the card saying it is dying? If so it is a weird way of graphics card dying.
