  1. Best answer
    Turn off PCI express power saving feature in Power Options.

    Go to Power Options \ Change Power plan settings \ Advanced settings. There you can turn off PCI express power-save feature.

    I do not know if this helps. But worth trying.
  2. Thanks for the tip. turns out the card was defective. i returned it and got a 550ti.
