BSoD on Start up - related do GPU R9 290 TRI-X


My PC is crashing on start up after I log in.

When I remove the GPU, Windows starts just fine. I tried to uninstall the drivers and install new ones, but the problem persists. I can log in in safe mode.

Any help would be great.

Thank you.

apologies it's taken a while to answer. I did start last night but it ended up being so late I couldn't stay awake and then was out first thing this morning so this is the first chance I've had but anyway I digress.
All your dump files in some way were connected to either the GPU driver or the card itself. Possible causes could be defective Vram, PSU underpowered or driver/software issues. Can you post what size the PSU is that your running including make and model.

Pop the card back in the system and run this test (after applying drivers ect)

The above tests the Vram. This test is for stability. Run the burn in test:

I also notice your running Norton AV which is a well known trouble maker. Another thing you could try is removing Norton and installing MSE as this is ultra stable.

Uninstall Norton using this special tool:

BiosVersion = 0704
BiosReleaseDate = 02/18/2011
BaseBoardManufacturer = ASUSTeK Computer INC.
BaseBoardProduct = P8H67-V

Looking on your motherboard support page I notice there are Bios updates available. The support page is for P8H67-V revision 3 Please ensure this is correct for your motherboard.:
How to update the bios - Again please ensure you have the correct download:

asmthub3.sys Thu Jan 27 02:19:26 2011: Asmedia ASM1042 USB 3 drivers please update:

Please run the Intel driver update utility:

See how you go after the above. Post any new dump files.
