So, I the only file is the original BSOD dmp one. I am actually not BSOD'ing anymore. A clean install of the drivers seemed to fix the BSOD, but what is happening is the screen loses signal after "windows is starting." I can hear the starting sounds and can even type my password to log in. I hear the logging in sound, but still nothing is displayed on the screen. Just black and the monitor loses signal.

Maybe this is a step forward or maybe this is an indication the card is just bad? I hope that is not the case.

Thanks for all the help so far =)

How about trying a DVI cable. See if that makes a difference. It will carry the same graphics, just not the audio.

I am using a DVI Cable:/ Tried the hmdi cable and no luck either:/ On a few restarts it hangs still on "starting windows" but most of the time the monitor loses signal and I hear the login sounds.

Also when it just freezes on "windows is starting" there hasn't been any more minidumps created. Just the first one I uploaded so I am not exactly sure what that means.

OK. Do you have another Graphics card you could try in that computer or a friend that would loan you one?
Do you have another computer you could try that grapics card in or a friend who would let you try it in their computer?
You can try the graphics card in another pcie slot in your computer to rule out a bad pcie slot.
I'm thinking either the motherboard, the card itself or the PSU. Due to the fact that I own/have owned an AX and HX 850, 2 HX 750's and an HX650 all Corsair's and have never had a problem, that would be last on my list. But, they do go bad, it does happen.
I am sure you have closely checked the wiring and made sure it is completely seated. 1/16 of an inch can make a big difference (learned from experience). Let's see if we can rule out the motherboard or the card. If you can put that card in another computer and it does the same thing, you would have your answer. If it runs fine and another card runs well in your computer, that would be an answer. If you can, I would try both, just to be certain.

Tried a friends graphics card. Updated drivers ect, booted up computer and there was no problems. Everything was running like it should be. :/ leads me to believe it is the card. I havnt tried my card in another computer as it is watercooled and would be an ordeal re-installing the normal heatsink and having to drain my system:/ Going to save that as a last resort.


I did re-seat my graphics card and no luck there. Also sent an email to EVGA support firmly voicing my opinion about the RMA card they sent me being a dud...so waiting to hear from them as well.

Any last attempt efforts you suggest to try and get this card working? Before I have to go through the RMA process again:/

Actually, I believe you found your problem. It would be pretty much conclusive if you could try your card in another machine. But, I understand the problems involved and don't blame you one bit. See what Asus says and try to RMA the card again.Let us know how it goes and how the new card works. I would be intrested to know what Asus say.
