Vega 56 is not being detected, or the driver isn't functioning properly

I've tried several different things, there was a previous thread on these forums about using DDU and then following it with a fresh install, that didn't work for me. I also tried a manual install in addition to multiple runs of the express installer. I've attached the error I've gotten every time.


While we're at it, this card will artifact and crash while gaming. Is it worth trying to troubleshoot these two issues, or should I return it? What else can I try as far as troubleshooting goes? This PC is a brand-new build, nothing was purchased used, I assembled this less than a month ago.
