I ended up taking my tower to Bestbuy since they have parts on hand I can swap in and out before buying the new card. Old video card would not pass post. We removed my old vc and puggled the monitor into my onboard vc. It did not pass post. We removed the CMOS battery for a while and reset it. After the reset the onboard video card passed post and booted. We re-installed the old video card and it passed post and booted.
I took home the tower figuring my vc is buggy and dying. It lasted about an hour and again crashed and refused to pass/boot. I spoke to EVGA and found out my vc is still under warranty. They are sending me a new one.
In the mean time I bought a new vc so I can have a computer until then. Installing the new video card had the exact same problems as the old one, it would not pass post until I removed the CMOS battery and went from the onboard to the vc. After that it boots. I installed the new drivers
, rebooted and within a minute crashed into a BSOD. This one is:
Rebooted and froze multiple times. Manged to get in long enough for a new post and report. I also have some message from ASUS saying somthing did not install correctly that pops up briefly on boot up then disappears. I'll try to get a picture of that msg so I can post that later.
