Been trying to figure this out for about 6 months. Evga support was no help, I tell them the issue, they want screenshots, try to send screenshots, wrong file type and size, learn how to edit the type and size, resend, still fails. Cant read anything on the pic at that size anyway, but I digress. I cannot control lighting or activate rebar because every time I open Precision it says it must restart the computer. "A system restart is needed to install the correct firmware update. Please reboot now." Ive seen a few of these posts but their fixes seem to not be working for me.
Yesterday I tried a fresh windows install again.
-Install hybrid cooler onto 3090 and install in PC.
-Change BIOS settings - Update mobo BIOS, Rebar enabled, Above 4g Encoding enabled, Fastboot disabled, CSM disabled, Boot drive on UEFI not on Legacy.
-Clean windows 10 install downloaded yesterday with media creation tool.
-Ditch edge for opera
-3090 ftw3 to 3090 hybrid oc bios w/rebar. 3983k940242c006 with oc switch on and 3983v940242c01f with oc switch off. Restart after each update. Downloaded from
-Install 3090 driver install from nvidia website, no geforce.
-Install chipset/mobo drivers
-Install precisionX newest version
-Precision will not open just gives me a please restart pc and proceeds to do so no matter what I click.
If I use a version 1.x.x of precision then it will run. But still no lighting or rebar control. Any help much appreciated.
