R9 270X DOA or User Error?

Q: R9 270X DOA or User Error?


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.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi guys,
I am planning to get a new graphics card. These are the two cards that I am looking at -
Asus AMD/ATI R9 270X Direct CUII 2GB GDDR5 and Sapphire AMD/ATI Radeon R9 270X with Boost OC 4 GB DDR5
I am inclined to choose Asus, but the Sapphire card comes with 4 GB memory as compared to 2 GB of Asus. Which one should be a better option for gaming? The price of the cards are more or less same, so that's not a problem.

Thanks in advance!

A:Sapphire R9 270X 4 GB DDR5 vs Asus R9 270X 2 GB DDR5

There is almost no difference between the two GPUs, only 2%
AMD Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 4GB OC Edition compare AMD Radeon R9 270X DirectCU II TOP 2GB Edition GPU
So either one is good, just make sure you have a good processor because of bottleneck.
Also if you're getting an AMD graphics card keep in mind that they get high temperatures and you need to have a cooling system.

Which is better?I'm going to buy a new one soon here are the cards that I think are the best for the pocket.
If you have any cards that are better than these please tell me down below.

First off, Please see this guide: System Info - See Your System Specs so we can determine the best graphics card for your computer.

The GTX 750 Ti can't be compared to a high end R9 270X. A Comparison between a GTX 750 Ti and R7 260X would be the perfect fit.

So i was downloading updates for League of Legends and listening to music. All of a sudden my screen turns blue, wasnt the BSOD.

It just...turned blue and I could still hear my music playing. I had to reset my desktop. This happened about 25 minutes after i installed the recent driver for the R9 270X. Now I cant get Aero on Windows 7 to turn on.

Whats is the problem?

A:AMD R9 270X Problem?

Is this the system in your sig? If so, download and install asus probe [available on the support page for your mb] Post the following; cpu temp, system temp, 12V, 5V, and 3.3V values.

Next have you tried a simple restore to a date prior to installing the new driver? If not, that would be the first thing I would do.

I have an m91p (i5-2400, 4GB, SFF) and take its components into a mid-tower case, and upgraded the PSU to 750W. I also purchased an R9-270X, but the machine won't boot with the graphic card. Just wondering: 1. if the machine is able to work with this card. If yes, what change should I make?2. if not possible, what is the best graphic card that can work on this machine? As you see, i have enough power supply. thanks, Z

Go to Solution.

A:Can m91p be upgraded to an R9-270X?

Unlikely anyone here has run a R9-270X in their M-series. The BIOS probably does not support that card. You could check that you have the latest installed. The ThickCenters are business focused PCs, and as such, support that class of graphics card, along the lines of a 7750 or R7 equivalent, or a GTX 750. A card that can support business apps on multiple screens.

i have an i5 3570k i know atm my gpu is holding me back but i want to get a card that can handle video editing as well as getting good fps on games. i found this image online and it looks like radeon r9 270x beats the render test by miles.

Hi, thanks for taking the time to look at my post.

Can I run a Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 4GB on a Corsair CX600M? I've tried looking this up and trying to find out myself, but it?s really confusing and I can't figure it out. I just want to be sure before I go and spend ?150 on a graphics card I can't run.
Does my PSU have all the correct connectors for it? I think it might do, but I think they come off the same rail or something and I dont know if thats okay. To be honest, I have very little idea of what I'm talking about here.

Thanks in advance for your help.
Also, here are the links to the manufacturer?s websites if it helps.

What type of card? AMD or nvidia? If it was nvidia, it might be worthwhile downloading and installing Driver Fusion, un-isnstalling the AMD drivers, running Driver Fusion to clean all Nvidia and/or AMD entries and re-installing your drivers. Even if not a nvidia card, it's still a step worth trying.

After completely ruling out drivers - It's possible that the card itself is faulty or the PSU since you had issues with stability running bitcoin.

For the GPU, as a test - either downclock your video card in afterburner, or increase the voltage if you can.

For the PSU, check the voltage reporting in the BIOS. Short of using a multimeter, it's almost impossible to check voltages accurately but the BIOS reporting

A:Frequent, Sporadic AMD Driver Crashes: Intel Z97, Win7 x64, R9 270X

I do not know the cause of the installation failures.

My guess would be -- because you have a Hybrid Intel/AMD graphics machine and, from what I've read, the drivers on the AMD site are not designed for Hybrid machines.

In general, when you have such a machine, you should only use the drivers from the machine manufacturer's website.

I followed a few tutorials and moved each folder by right clicking it and clicking the "Move" button on the location tab

After that, I editted the keys here:

To use the HD. I also copied over the folders "Default", "Public", and "UpdatusUser" to the new location.

After restarting my computer everything works but my user has no picture. If I try and change the picture no pictures come up to be selected.

A few weeks ago when I restarted my laptop I noticed my background photo was gone and folders saved on the desktop as well. Whenever I restart my computer I get an info notice that says "Your user profile was not loaded correctly; you have been logged in with a temp profile, changes made to this profile will be lost when you log off, please see the event log for details or contact your administrator". This is my home laptop so I have no administrator. I don't know where the event log is. It has created several "temp profiles", I just want to log in to my main profile, it has to still be in there. I tried to go to system restore and it didn't seem to change anything. What can I do to restore my login profile in Windows Vista? Thanks so much.

Somehow the admin account on my Vista laptop became corrupted. I cannot even use the guest account w/ override because it seems to generate an internal exception when trying to authenticate the typed password. At this point, it does nothing, failing the override.

I have tried the method described here:

- Did not work.

To complicate issues more, the registry hive for the admin user also seems to be corrupted. I cannot open certain GUID/SID nodes either - they have no children nodes --- Gives "unable to access" error when clicked."

Is there anything I can do short of reinstalling Vista?

Hey guys Let me preface this by saying that I have done some research and have found SIMILAR issues to mine but not this exact problem For Christmas I upgraded my computer a great deal New processor hard drive RAM video card motherboard DVD drive power supply etc Basically a new machine except the case Used a utility with my new hard drive to transfer everything over from my old one so there was no need to reinstall XP or anything Everything on my account works perfectly However my sister's account is having issues When she clicks on User Accounts an error message comes up saying an error has occurred in the script user Error accounts in on this page then at the bottom it asks if you want to continue running scripts The rest of the dialogue box is completely blank Clicking yes no or X does nothing but immediately create a new window with the exact same thing Any ideas on Error in user accounts what I can do to fix this problem Thanks for your help

A:Error in user accounts

When upgrading a computers hardware, the best thing to do i reinstall the operating system, or else problems can occur. Because when you install xp, alot of neccecary drivers and programs installs for just that type of hardware and if you don't, it can accur alot of errors.

In my opinion, you should just reinstall the operating system. Because you can come across more errors.

Again, Fdisk format win98, then New installed XP home, updated to SP2 with the 15 upgrades from MSN.

While installing my final firewall/protection I got an Error:
WINDOWS: Are you sure you want to shut down, another user is still using windows

This continued through 4 reboots and only after I totally turned the computer off did it stop.

The only thing that keeps popping up firewall wise is @[email protected]

I just can't feel safe any more

Also one other bug got through before I could get everything installed, AntiSpyware found it: KC RAT,,and it was a high threat/remote control Critter..but it was quarntiened.

With all the adware/firewall stuff I'm runnin it bothers me though that somthing is still sliping through. Any suggestions?

Hi Folks,

Hey John,

I already went to the MS site and downloaded IE 6, SP1 and installed
it. Seemed to help for a day or so. Now the first time we type in an

IE has caused an error in USER.DLL
IE has caused an error in TOOLBAR.DLL
The above is part of an email from a friend in AZ. It seems that she did some "clean up" on her machine, and probably cleaned too much. She runs Windows ME.

I know I've seen this problem before, but this AM, I am blanked out and my searching is not helping.

I was trying to watch a streaming video on my laptop and one of those fake spyware things popped up so I immediatley shut my computer down. But now when I log on no matter if I'm in safe mode or not my computer takes me to this screen that looks like my login but it only lists Other User. When I click on that it asks me for Username and password. No matter what I type in it tells me the specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. To be clear there was no password on my computer before so I didn't forget it and there is an ease of access button but it doesn't work, neither does control alt delete.

Hi MichaelJHeup and welcome to TSF !

See this and tell us if it helps :
How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile

Edit : I'd like to check whether your old account hasn't been deleted before making anything else as if your documents have been deleted you'll want to stop using that computer at all to recover your missing files before anything overwrites them.

Make sure you're logged with an account that has administrative rights (check it in control panel => user accounts).

In Windows Explorer, click Tools, click Folder Options, click the View tab, click Show hidden files and folders, click to clear the Hide protected operating system files check box, and then click OK.

Locate the C:\Documents and Settings\Old_Username folder, where C is the drive on which Windows XP is installed, and Old_Username is the name of your old user profile.

See whether all your files are still there before you try the recovery method above.

If the old username folder doesn't exist anymore then don't panic. Your data is still there until something has been written over it. You'll have to stop using this computer immediately (simply using windows writes some data on the drive), take the drive out of the case, install some file recovery software on another computer, hook your drive in that computer and recover your files from it. Don't write any data on your drive until everything has been recovered (save the recovered files to another drive).

Hi there

I am having a problem with my usual login profile. When I choose my normal login, after booting, I receive the error message "Windows cannot load the locally stored profile". Windows then procedes to load a temporary profile under my normal login name. This profile is not saved when I log out.

Sometimes System Restore will get me back to my normal login but after a while the problem starts again.

Any ideas folks?

Be slow to delete, but you can copy files if you want. See if Dad has a folder.Also, does it do it when you start inSafe Mode by tapping F8 repeatedly at a reboot. Start when the screen goes black and keep it up until the screen appears where you can use the up arrow to choose safe mode. Hit enter. Hit enter. Do more than one user name appear at the slightly modified welcome screen?In fact what do you see at a normal boot, the welcome screen with a user name?There is a way to see that screen without any user name & windows simply continues to the desktop after a couple seconds of showing it.

For some reason my computer loads slowly. I log in then black screen with mouse only can be seen. it takes <10 seconds for explorer.exe to appear.

"User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded".
I then ran sfc /scannow command in Administrator command prompt. It found few files but was unable to repair them.
unfortunately I cannot open log because I have access denied popping up (was working before).

I think those two problems are somehow connected is there a way to resolve any of those?

Keep in mind that I cannot access anything beyond the user logon screen (I cannot use msconfig, or any of the good stuff)! Please help!

A:XP User Logon Error!!!

It sounds like a machine that was not activated before the timeout period, except that Safe Mode is usually still accessible.

You'll need to boot from your XP CD and do a repair installation.

In short----->

All you do is boot from the CD. When it asks if you want to repair and to press "R", don't. Continue with the installation just like you were installing for the first time.

You will then get a license agreement and it will ask you to press F8 to agree. Right after that screen, you will see a list of Windows installations that setup found. It will ask if you want to repair it. Read the directions on that page!!!

Then, you will actually press "R" this time and XP will re-install. Easy as pie.

When done, you will be back to your familiar desktop with everything looking just like it did before. But all your Windows Updates are gone and you will need to get those again.

Hey guys,

A:Skype User Interface error

Please try this and report back if it worked or not.

Reboot, run Skype. When it shows you the blank blue background as shown in your screenshot, leave it open. Now open the Run dialog (WIN + R) and type or copy & paste the following:

On a Windows x64 system:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" /secondary

On a Windows x86 system:

"C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" /secondary

Press Enter or click OK:

This opens a second Skype process in a new window. If this second instance does not work either, it tells something is wrong with your Skype installation and you should completely remove it from your system and reinstall. If the second instance works as it should we need to look for the error somewhere else.

A:switch user get error massage

Try logging OUT of your account and log into your other account(s) and log each of them out. Do NOT use the switch user. Then restart the machine.
I think you may find that the machine was shut down when a account was switched from.

This MAY fix things, but, after the restart, I would log in to each account and then log out to test each of them.

I do NOT use the switch user, for reasons such as this.

And I would have to redo outlook for all my email. I just want to fix this, so I can get back to work. I made the mistake of following advice to do a chkdsk, which is just now at 42%. Can anyone here help me? Thanks in advance!

A:Help! User profile logon error

Let the chkdsk finish.  If you stop it you will wind up with missing or damaged files.

2003 domain, and Exch 2003 for email.

We change passwords every 30 days ( policy)

So one of my users changed thier password and now can no longer access network resources. She cant open her email ether because we store the PST file in a mapped my documents folder.

SO when I try to open her my documents it wants me to athenticate. So I put her user name and password in, in the following format


It just bounces me back to the logon box..

I have reset the password again I have power cycled her machine and rebooted all the DC's and the Exchange box.

I dont understand...

If I change the password and I am able to logon that mean I am using the correct credentials, cause I am not logging on with chached ones. I dont know maybe someone has had something like this before.

A:Solved: User password error

Issue seems to have resolved its self. Must have been an issue with AD replicating or something I dunno, will mark as solved.

A:error messages in one user profile

Hello tgv, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if doing a system restore at boot using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened may be able to fix this for you.

Hope this helps,

Thank you.

I receive the following error on login to my account, but not when I log into my partner's account. There are no errors in windows log, and I've provided the processes running on the computer, but due to the vagueness of the error (there being absolutely no text) I can't really figure this one out.

A:Error in User Account Profile! Help!


The MS C++ will no doubt be used by other applications requiring those runtime files so deleting them was a bad idea

As for your Antivirus, try re-installing it to see if it'll allow uninstallation from the Windows 'Remove Program' option in Control Panel.

By 'User Profile' what are you referring to? Every computer has/needs a user profile to function. Is it a new user created?

Hi all,
I'm trying to fix an issue with a friends laptop, and wondered if anyone on here might be able to help.
The issue seems to be fairly common; upon entering the password on bootup, I receive the error 'The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded', and then have no option but to logout.
I've managed to find some solutions online, but they don't seem to be possible for my situation. I don't have a Vista recovery disk or the original installation disk available, so can't fix it this way. While I can boot it up in safe mode, no system restore points have been saved, so I can't restore it either.

In addition, there is no administration profile I can access; only the one user profile that has the issue.

Does anyone know of another way this issue could be fixed? Any help would be much appreciated.

So, I'm working on this .bat script.

I'm using NOTEPAD to edit from command prompt.

I ALT-F, ALT-S to save and ALT-F and ALT-X to exit. Then run my script.

I ALT-F after almost every line I change (very anal). Make a few changes, exit NOTEPAD and rerun the script.

After half a dozen changes/tests, I go back into the .bat script and it is NOW back to what it practically was when I started. TWO whole sections of code (non-contiguous) are missing from it. Part of a FOR /F loop was cut off.

I haven't had a computer error in a heck of a long time.

I'm all ears on this one. I lost half an hour of work.

A:computer error - can't possibly be the user

Hi Jim,

Is it possible you have two copies of the .BAT file? I know it seems unlikely, but this has happened to me before....and I swore I always working on just the one copy

At least one component is missing. Try reinstalling the application. If the problem persists, contact our technical support (0010). Window Title: Error The Only Button in this error message window/dialog is OK.

Thanks for your assistance... ...Mike

I can't boot to safe mode. I know of three ways to do it. Use boot options in msconfig (I can no no longer select them), press shift when restarting your PC and you are supposed to get boot options such as repiar, safe mode, shutdown, etc, (all it shows now is a heading of Options and the only option being shutdown), another way is press shift on boot up and again you are supposed to see a list of options including boot to safe mode (all it get now is nothing at all and it continues to login screen).

This is on Win8.1 and not Win10 so wtf is going on? Maybe I changed an option in gpedit? I'm going with Microsoft sabotage taking away user control even further right now.

p.s. yes I ran msconfig with admin rights

A:User error or more Microsoft sabotage?

You admit you probably altered the Windows defaults by making a Group Policy Edit - YOU changed something (and from reading previous posts it's pretty obvious that you have made quite a few changes on your machine) - and yet it's Microsoft that now gets your blame? Again? Really?

By the way: when are you switching to Linux 'cause you've pretty much railed against Windows for a long time, Linux could use some of that energy you're putting into all that ranting.

This has happened for as long as I created my account on my xp computer. I just ignored it all the time but now it's getting very annoying. When I log on, a message pops up before my profile loads. It says:

"Windows cannot load the user's profile but has logged you on with the default profile for the system.

DETAIL - The configuration registry database is corrupt."

And it has a 30 second timer before it automatically loads the profile. How do I fix this?

A:Error when loading user account

Under User Profiles reset the rights to your user profile folder.
Login as an Administrator
Go to System Properties - User Profiles - (select the profile that does not work)- select copy to - select the folder that represents the profile of the user you selected. This should solve the problem.
