Hi all, recently put together a gaming PC. It worked long enough to install windows updates and download some software (so at least a few hours) then just blipped off. I turn it back on and it boots into windows, but a series of horizontal black bars flicker across the log in screen, and when you input password and try to load the profile, it just goes black. At the time I hadn't installed the latest video drivers from the AMD website, which is the only error that I know that I made.
I tried removing the video card, deleting the drivers, and installing the new driver from the website, but still get the same problem. The system worked with the on board video. Any help? So far, I've only managed to create a $1000 fan machine!
Sweet, this is getting a bit pricey though. I think I'm gonna stay with 7850, seems like most bang for buck. I don't want to buy from asus again though. What's the most reliable company to buy the gpu from? I'm thinking either gigabyte or MSI.
