I have quite a slew of problems going on right now and could use some help.
I had an
AMD A10 7850k
8gb of Radeon memory and an
MSI A88 e45 motherboard running Windows 8.1.
Everything was working fine.
I upgraded my GPU my power supply and my hard drive.
XFX Radeon R9 290x
SSD is a Samsung Evo 850.
Other than that the rest of the build is the same. I'm having all kinds of problems.
-Sometimes my USB devices disconnect and reconnect.
-The audio on my audio interface stops working (a Scarlett Focusrite 18i20) probably happens when my USB devices disconnect for a sec.
-PC sometimes locks up completely. Ctrl Alt Delete doesn't even work.
-I get a display driver has stopped responding and has recovered error message.
Things I have tried:
- Latest motherboard chipset drivers both from MSI site and AMDs site.
- Used fresh install of windows 8.1 several times when trying different drivers. Also tried a driver cleaner
-Three different Catalyst drivers. (14.13 15.5 15.6)
- Tried both disabling and Setting to auto the iGPU in bios.
-Tried changing the power supply
-Checked to make sure things werent overheating. Happens when GPU and CPU are cool or running hot
-Tried turning off usb 3 support
-Tried disabling usb power savings settings
- Ran the windows hard drive and memory tests. No errors came up.
Anyone have any ideas what could be causing all this? I'm going to try reseating the gpu in a moment I'm running out of ideas. How can I tell the difference if it is just a driver/windows issue or if the GPU is faulty?
