Amd error [ SOLVED: needed power to pci-e riser ]


#21

Now I want to point out I did bios mod this card so I’m not sure if this could cause an issue?

Make sure you’re uninstalling the previous drivers via DDU https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html

Once fully uninstalled, install the special blockchain drivers mentioned above.

Don’t forget to re-sign the drivers with the Pixel Patcher tool (you should have this from when you did the BIOS mods).

Ok thank you I will try all this and get back


#24

Ok did ddu uninstall tryed to run new blockchain drivers this is the screen I got


#25

Maybe I should wipe the hdd and completely start over?


#26

Ok following up, the problem is fixed…I didn’t realize my pci-e riser didn’t have power supplied to it :man_facepalming:


#27

It’s interesting though because the graphics card had power supply to it and the fans were running and the display was off of the graphics card lesson learned
