Hi guys so I tried to install the newest driver for my GTX 770 and it froze after the welcome screen http://imgur.com/5SBYbkK the same thing happened when I used the disk. I used the driver sweeper to uninstall the drivers and reinstall but it didn't work. I also tried something I found on another thread and it's msconfig > diagnostic mode. I used safe mode to install the drivers too. The fans on the gpu is spinning and I'm not sure if it's faulty. It doesn't get displayed on device manager- only the standard vga monitor adapter or whatever gets displayed.

Sounds like a headache. I recommend that you return the card for a refund, or sell the thing. Then order an R9 280x to match your processor. Life will be a great deal easier that way.

You dont need to Match an AMD GPU with an AMD CPU/APU...

I would try another driver to be sure. Im guessing your using 332.21? Id try 331.82 just to be sure.
Are you getting any Beep codes? Try removing the GPU and then re installing it back into your case.

It may be faulty of course, and I would just follow the RMA process for a replacement.

Either company will have buggy drivers and/or faulty cards.

I don't say there is any need to match the GPU to the CPU. But the R9 280x would give the gentleman a better experience.

Good luck.
