So my card's LED bar and the side EVGA logo is stuck on green. Can't change it to anything else. Can't even turn it off. Interestingly, the EVGA logo on the back of the card works perfectly. Nothing else is malfunctioning with the card. LED control apply button in precision is grayed out whenever I make any changes. If I make a change elsewhere to make the apply button clickable and go back to changing LEDs and then click the apply button, Precision crashes.
 
This happened after I did a memtest86 overnight.
 
I noticed it changed to red and the side LED turned off without me doing anything with it. But after a restart, it's back to stuck on green.
 
I tried reinstalling precision, reinstalling drivers, and flashing the new BIOS. Is there a firmware I can download to try?
 
Seems kinda weird. Anybody else have this issue?

    I updated from 1.1.0.9 to 1.1.1 in order to try and fix it. It happened on 1.1.0.9.

    Have the same issue. No amount of troubleshooting fixed it. EVGA is sending a replacement

    Downgrading to precision 1.1.0.11 fixed the issue for me.
     
    Edit: It's screwed up again with the old precision. I hope they release a 3080TI soon so I can upgrade or I RMA this card when stock stabilizes.

    Update: the LED is stuck in red now. With only like half of the LED bar lit. Has been cycling through stuck on green and red for a few weeks. I'm wondering if the 3080 TI do come out in January, maybe I can ship this in for a Step-up and RMA at the same time?

    Did you get your issue fixed? I also have this issue with my 3080 FTW3 Ultra but instead it freezes on random rainbow RGB colors and flickers on-and-off randomly constantly. It's quite annoying so I've dimmed the brightness of the bar in PX1 to at least not have it look so bothersome on my desk. But I would like to know if there is a fix for this problem as well because it really is irritating, thank you.

    Huh, that really is a frustrating problem when something cosmetic breaks to the point that it actively detracts from the experience. Glad to hear that firmware update solved it for some, since it would be disappointing to need to RMA an otherwise functional card over some lighting

    Are you still having this issue on newer versions? I'm on version 1.2.1.0 and have this issue. If you're still on 1.1.3.0 then maybe I'll just downgrade.

    If you go to 1.1.3 it will do a firmware update which will make the card work properly with the precision software, then from there, you can upgrade to whatever version you want. I'm on the latest now. It works fine for me on the newest version.

    I'm having a similar problem. My 3080 Ti FTW3 changes my custom set LED profile (set for temp readings) back to the rainbow effect during gameplay and desktop use, seemingly at random. Last night I tested the card with Dirt Rally 2.0 for a bit, and it worked perfectly fine until I went back to the main menu, then it cycled back to rainbow. Restarted my PC, no difference. The settings in PX1 had changed back to Rainbow, had to re-enter my custom settings. Same thing this morning.
     
    I really like the effect when it's set the way I want it, and I love the idea. But the execution is a little frustrating, tbh.

    I had same issues with LED's. I went thru the whole list of troubleshooting tasks listed at the beginning of the forum page for EVGA 30 series cards. https://forums.evga.com/Basic-troubleshooting-steps-Windows-clean-boot-clean-driver-install-debug-mode-etc-m2504606.aspx  I got a new copy of Microsoft C++ (x86) from installing the whole driver package - all of it. Then go back and uninstall the trash.  Sorry I didn't do it in true fashion to pick out which thing fixed. Try this first tho, go into the LED control and turn each LED bar off, even if it doesn't respond and save. shut you PC down and restart without PX1. Hopefully all your LEDS are now off. If you still have the same problems go thru the troubleshooting tasks listed in the link provided. Yeah, its a pain. But an RMA is much worse, especially when its probably your registry or something in your bios not switch on or off. Make sure to perform clean boot correctly.
     
    I say this to you - I did whats said above and my card is fixed. Good luck.

    I appreciate the information. This sounds tedious, but I'll have to dedicate next weekend to trying out the troubleshooting steps. If it worked for you, it gives me some hope!

    Just a heads up, I went back to using 1.1.4 and everything is now working great for me (at least for the past 4 days). I tried 1.1.3, and while this did fix the LED getting switched back issue, there is a bug in 1.1.3 where it doesn't save your frequency curve correctly and will cause precision to crash if you save a modified frequency curve, then you try to load it. Anyway, give 1.1.4 a try and see if that fixes your issues. Good luck!

    Thanks for the heads-up. I had previously tried rolling back to 1.1.3 and it had the same problem, but wouldn't even load PX1 on the desktop, just run in the background. SO I went back to 1.2.1. Figured I'd give it one last try this morning, uninstalled PX1 with RevoUninstallerPro - which I highly recommend to anyone dealing with this or other stubborn programs that won't uninstall correctly. Installed 1.1.4 and so far, so good. Will report back in a few days for an update, this may be the solution for now.
     
    Thanks again to weasal1122 and tdpeek3 for the help, I appreciate it!

    Just an update, in case others end up having this problem.

    A full un-install of drivers using "Display Driver Uninstaller" in Windows 'Safe Mode', followed by rebooting into regular Windows, then using "Revo Uninstaller Pro" to clear out all 'EVGA Precision X1' files, including 'EVGA LED Sync' using the "Uninstall" option followed by a scan for remaining files and deleting them. Rebooting to reset the card itself, reinstalling your preferred nVidia drivers, THEN installing 'Precision X1' version 1.1.4, worked for me. The LED's are working correctly, no having to close and restart PX1, or rebooting the system.

    I'm glad this thread exists, thanks again for the help everyone!
