Question PC won't boot due to XFX RX 580 issues ?

Nov 20, 2021
  • GPU: XFX RX 580 8 GB
  • CPU: i7 8700
  • Motherboard: z370 d3m
  • 120 GB SATA SSD w/ 1 TB HDD
  • RAM: 8GB
  • PSU: Coolermaster masterwatt 600 lite
A few weeks ago, I installed this GPU and only a week later, issues started popping up.

The screen would flicker once and go black for 5 seconds, to resume to "AMD display driver has crashed. Sometimes it would hang for 30 seconds instead of flickering.

Most of the time, turning on the PC will not boot to Windows, keyboard and mouse LEDs don't turn on either (That of components and some other peripherals do).

Unplugging and replugging power cable on GPU will boot it fine next time. Doing the same with PSU on motherboard or the ram will not amount to anything.

Updated/downgraded drivers to old/latest/whql ones but nothing happened.

Any help is appreciated.
