Hi, I recently had to RMA a gtx 980ti. Upon receiving the RMA'd product in the mail I installed it and began receiving white checkerboard artifacts upon start up, just after the system itself POST's. Shortly after this ether two things would occur: 1) The display would black screen, like my original card that I RMA'd, forcing me to reboot, 2) The computer would display a Blue Screen of Death with the code Video Scheduler Internal Error and force restart.
What I have done to troubleshoot:
1) Re-seated GPU
2) Tried another PCIe slot
3) Reinstalled all drivers utilizing Display Driver Uninstaller, and re downloaded the latest driver from the NVIDIA website
4) Completely removed GPU from system, and utilized on-board processor graphics to write this post.
I've already started another RMA process, but if any of you guys have any suggestions on how to fix this it would save both me and EVGA time. Unless of course I received a faulty GPU from an RMA which is hard to believe, but I guess it could happen.
