Describe your issue:

Anytime I attempt to install drivers on the system the PC will Blue Screen and restart.


I went into safe mode and manually installed the only Vega driver and after doing that in safemode it actually detects the card properly but when loading windows it will now crash, only way I can get it to load is in safemode or by disabling the display adapter, after it boots up if I enable the display adapter it will immediately crash.


Before even putting the Vega in the PC i ran the clean Driver from my old cards and wiped everything, even ran windows updates to no avail.


My guess is that the motherboard may not be able to support the new RAM in the Vega but I can't be sure and can't find much of anything online. I have two Vega cards and they both do the exact same thing, in different slots in the motherboard and my old cards still work when they are installed so it isn't a hardware issue unless its just compatibility.


Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
