Re: 2060 & RAM Incompatibility
still doesnt explain why neither card works. or why the pci8 slot doesnt work. i did forget to remove the radeon drivers before installing the evga card, but good grief that shouldnt cause all of windows to have a major meltdown.
Yes actually that can. It's never a good idea to leave AMD drivers installed when Installing Nvidia drivers and vice versa. That is a well known recipe for disaster....and surprise surprise...you had a disaster. At the very least run DDU and COMPLETELY remove all files and driver fragments before installing cross vendor video cards. I would personally wipe both Nvidia and AMD drivers and start over. This isn't a "RAM compatibility" issue, it's a driver conflict issue that you brought on yourself and to be honest you may need a clean reinstall of windows if what I recommend below doesn't work for you.
Then download the latest Nvidia drivers do not install them yet.
Boot into safe mode by holding your "shift" key and selecting restart. Do not let go of shift till the system resets. When it reboots select "troubleshoot PC", then select "start up settings" and after it reboots again, choose option 4 for nothing but the bare minimums and no internet.
When in safe mode run DDU and select "GPU" and then "AMD". Then choose to clean and restart (the top option on the left of the DDU tab). Then repeat the steps to get back into safe mode after you reboot. Then again run DDU and this time select GPU and then Nvidia. This time before you reboot unplug the ethernet cable from your PC this is to prevent Windows from auto installing drivers when you reboot. Then reboot normally, and BEFORE you plug the internet cable back in install the Nvidia drivers. If it asks you to reboot go ahead and do so, if not then just plug the ethernet cable back in.
