Ok, so I bought a Power Color TurboDuo R7265 and after installing it I've been having driver issues. I installed the Drivers from the CD that came with it and I had several crashes. Usually black screen with system restart but one or two BSODs as well. The reason I say driver issue is obvious #1, #2 Device manager is recognizing it as HD 7800 series which is obviously not correct. I will say that I saw with my own eyes Device manager update the HD 7800 reading to R7 200 series reading with the automatic updating it does. That was when I started having crashes. The only way I've been able to remain steady is to uninstall and rollback the drivers. Unfortunately, the rolled back drivers and the card itself have not been able to recognize my 42' screen as a second monitor. The computer boots up with it fine, but as soon as Windows starts to load it disappears. Also, in the semi stable state I've managed to get to with the HD 7800 drivers(I hate not having it read up-to-date) I am still seeing some visual "funniness" ...lines and tearing while playing WoW, glitches and slow loading on web browsing etc, even a crash or two while trying to watch videos. This is killing me and driving me nuts....There are many other things I could say here but that is the basic jist I guess...#1 What drivers should I have and from where
#2 How can I make my Tv stay on when Windows boots??
HALP PLEASE!

try this
First of all you need to TOTALLY remove all the old drivers. Use this link.

Note:
Select the respective company(i.e Nvidia or ATI) drivers to be uninstalled.
Use clean and restart option.
And then install the new drivers after rebooting.

OK, so after I thought this was resolved after a week or two of functionality....The problem has kicked into overdrive! The other night while playing Hearthstone, the graphics completely froze up while everything else continued working(sound and even mouse although I couldn't see it I could hear it). I was forced to hard restart and since then I haven't bee able to get any visual at all. Can't even see the boot screen. I am getting so frustrated I want to sell my computer. I've tried on board graphics, different monitors , wires...I unplugged everything and took out RAM, cleaned everything reinstalled and still nothing....I will say, I turned on power with no RAM in the machine and did not get any beep codes... what does this mean

It means your GPU is bad. RMA it

I would tend to agree I guess I'm just confused as to why on board graphics aren't working either...

Did you try removing the GPU and the onboard graphics?
If so then then the PSU or mobo might be at fault.

I didn't even know they had motherboards that work with the FX series with onboard graphics

so, with the Ram and GPU pulled out, and nothing but power cord plugged in, when I turn it on I get no beeps....does this mean my MOBO is shot?
Also, something strangechappened today. I tried to turn it on for the first time in a few days...The machine started up fans going and all, then I realized the monitor wasn't on so I hit the power button on the monitor and when it came up it was frozen at a CMOS error screen...said CMOS checksum failure

More likely than not it is a motherboard problem. Do you have a multimeter to test the CMOS battery?
Try booting with the battery out (it works sometimes)

I do not have a multimeter and do not have experience removing the battery....
