what do i do guys? pic related my card
uninstall drivers fully shut down and restart reinstall drivers..if its still there. get new card.
uninstall the drivers for your GPU while booted into integrated graphics, reboot with the card plugged in and see what happens
If it gives BSOD again your card might be totally toast
Well, considering that the gpu shown looks to be a bit older I would have to say that you may have a few dying RAM dimms. If you are running Windows 10 you may be even more prone to RAM sensitivities (personal experience). Best I could say is cycle through your RAM dimms and try them in different slots too. Hope I helped in any way bubs :)
Holy shit, the same happened to me with my 280x
You can use it normally with Windows basic drivers and in safe mode, right? Will it BSOD with a video_tdr something when you try to install drivers?
Looks like we are in the same boat, then.
I've even tried to run the gpu on my brother's PC, but it just turned on and got a black screen after windows load screen.
All I can think now is to try the oven thing since my gpu isn't covered at warranty anymore (fuck you, MSI, next time I'm getting an EVGA)
Basically confirmation that the card is fucked. Without drivers the load on it is extremely low, as it can't be utilised properly. When you install the drivers, proper load can be placed on the card. If it's failing straight away after doing that, it's done for.
