I'm pretty sure I did, I just might not have quoted your post directly. The only setting I can see that relates to this setting in the UEFI is the primary graphics adapter is set to "PCI express"

thanks

Are you grounding yourself with a wrist strap when swapping these cards in an out? Also are you making sure you unplug the pc before working on it? Im not insulting you by asking these questions just ive seen guys spoken to guys who dont get that static damages components!

Great point; I'd just like to point out that wrist straps aren't really necessary. Holding onto a metal part of your case is more than good enough.

I have not been working with wrist straps and while they do their job, it think its unnecessary in my situation. I have a wooden floor and I touch the grounded copper pipe leading into my radiator just before I go to assemble my computer (and touch the case just before as a precaution)

If I had luck like yours with video cards, I'd start buying used cards that I know function from friends who can demonstrate in person that the card is fine. That is some serious voodoo you've got going on.

I'll admit that I've RMA'd 3 AMD cards, but it was solely because of Neweggs crappy shipping. The cards were arriving with pieces broken off and the inside of the box smashed. The card I'm using now arrived with a piece broken off of the shroud, but I said screw it since I'm watercooling it anyways, and I was tired of trading cards out.

Right, I only got around to re installing windows today. I waited for all the windows updates to install before I went ahead with the graphics card driver install. Initially everything was running fine and I thought that the issue was fixed, but surprise, surprise, the sky flashed back as it did previously.

Its pretty sure its not a software problem then?
