    Is there a life after blackscreen?...
    For those who unaware of the issue: (I'll try to be short) the card, Sapphire r9 290 tri-x oc uefi 4gb gddr5, without a reason sometimes just turn off (or doesn't, but anyway there is no image on the monitor when it happens). There are tons of info about this problem on the internet.
    A couple of days ago the issue became permanent, what means the card go into bs right after post, the timing when it supposed to be windows login prompt to be shown off.
    I've switched to another card atm and thinking what to do with the card. Should I flash some other bios, like turn it into -x version? Should I try to flash it into 390? What experiments are worth to bring it to life after all?
    Any help appreciated.
    p.s. hope my english isn't that bad)

    In all honesty, if the black screen is as you say permanent, then it doesnt matter what you do with it. Just go nuts. Flash one bios, then another, torture the poor thing in any way you can think of, because as it stands, it cant get any worse than it already is.

    You have an opportunity to do whatever you want with that card because for all intents and purposes its already dead, and you need one of us to tell you what to do?I mean, you cant hurt it anymore, it cant get deader than it already is, so just imagine the possibilities and go nuts. As for me, I'm not going to be the one telling you what your hearts desire is...
