  1. Yeah I watched them and my bet is on it being the monitor and not the GPU, but still try it on a spare tv just to make sure it doesn’t do it on that, if it doesn’t then its the monitor or display port at least, if it does its the GPU. Also what you are seeing is not ghosting, ghosting is an artifact caused by a slow response time. As the screen refreshes, the human eye still perceives the image previously displayed causing a smearing or blurring visual effect, not the rainbow thing you see. That could be due to the monitor being on its way out, GPU being on its way out or possibly incorrectly supported color settings that the monitor can’t process set within your graphics driver, i.e. Full RGB vs Limited RGB. Edit: One more thought, have you tried an older graphics driver? Before I retired my R9 290X a few weeks ago Radeon would tend to have a few buggy drivers every now and then, could be something minor like that or sometimes it would disable my overclocks. I would honestly try this one before all else. Make sure you DDU before you do though so no remnants of the current driver make their way to the other driver you try. And if it’s already an older driver try a new one.
  2. Have you tested it on a different monitor to isolate things, if not do you have a spare GPU laying around? I would test a different monitor first though to see if the issue persists. If you don't have another monitor try a TV, pretty much all of them by today's standards have and HDMI port and some have Display ports.
  3. Yeah its just a temporary PSU until my EVGA 850W Platinum gets here. As far as the controller goes I do have an Xbox 360 controller that's been working fine for the past week or so. My theory is that maybe if I get a PCI-E USB card to slot in there it may work, if not then oh well I have more USB ports lol. Also I do know this controller with the wireless adapter works on 7 and 8.1 (its the launch model Xbox One controller not the new Bluetooth one that requires W10) because I use it on my laptop all the time when I feel like playing a few games on it, which it has Windows 7 on it. I honestly think its down to the Bios level of things and it just not having a compatibility of some sort.
  4. All the computers on my network I have named after planetary objects because I’m weird lol.
  5. Actually its not only supported on windows 10, as it works just fine on my laptop which has windows 7. The one that is limited to windows 10 is the Bluetooth version of it. I think I narrowed it down to the motherboard just having an incompatibility of some sort with it as I tried my wife’s wireless Xbox 360 controller with it and it works flawlessly. Either way I appreciate the answer.
  6. I wanted to post an update, I formatted the PC and installed Windows 8.1 and it didn’t change a thing. So the issue persists among several Windows versions on the same PC.
  7. Just recently resurrected an old build I had and was setting it up to play some games on it. My issue is that after installing the Xbox One wireless controller driver (the USB dongle version, controller is also the first model from the launch Xbox One) i’ll turn it on and it seems to work but It varies from game to game. Basically what happens is it’ll just randomly drop its connection to the dongle and it tries to reconnect but it just keeps flashing until I disconnect the dongle from the PC and reconnect it.For example I can play GTA V and it’ll be fine for 15-20 minutes and then it’ll disconnect and not reconnect until I unplug it. Skyrim (32-bit version) this one I can’t get it to stay connected for even 15 seconds. I’ve scoured on the Internet everywhere and cannot seem to find a solution. It works 100% fine on my laptop (Which is Windows 7) and my primary desktop (Which is Windows 10 version 1803) and does not suffer from the same issues of it disconnecting.Affected PC specs: CPU: Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 @ 4GHzMB: Evga nforce 790i Ultra SLIRAM: Patriot DDR3 1600MHz 2 x 4GBSSD: Kingston A400 120GB SATA IIISSD: Crucial MX100 512GB SATA IIIGPU: 2 x Nvidia GTX 660 in SLIPSU: Thermaltake White 600WOS: Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit (all up to date)All USB 2.0 ports are functional Main Desktop it works on:CPU: Intel Core i7-5775C @ 4.4GHzMB: ASUS Z97-E/USB 3.1RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 2 x 8GB @ 2000MHzSSD: Samsung 850 Evo 120GBHDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 2TBGPU: AMD R9 290X 4GBPSU: Corsair RM850W GoldOS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (ver 1803)Worked in USB 2.0/3.0 and 3.1 portsLaptop it works in:CPU: Intel Pentium 2020M @ 2.4GHz (Ivy Bridge Mobile)MB: ToshibaRAM: Crucial 2 x 8GB 1600MHzOS: Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit (Up to date as far as I know)Worked in a USB 2.0 portSteps taken to try and fix it:1. Reinstalling Windows (did not work)2. Reinstalled the driver about 20 times now (did not work)3. Tested the device on two other computers (worked on both of those)4. Tried other devices in the USB ports of the affected PC (USB ports fully work)5. Tried a wired connection (Works but not in any game)6. GeForce Experience is not installed (I have heard conflicting statements on this affecting it and at the same time it doesn’t for other people)7. Tried it in all USB ports on the motherboard and it does the same exact thing.8. Computer is not too ancient as it worked in the previous incarnation of this same exact build minus the SLI, with an AsRock G41 motherboard 9. Set USB in device manager to not turn off to conserve power (did not work) 10. Updated the controller firmware via windows 10 xbox accessories app. (Did not work)If anyone has anything else I can try please suggest it because I have been pulling my hair out for a week trying to figure why it will not work in this computer.
