  1. I am definitely going to do this soon. Thank you.
  2. Does everything look right? There's also a little blinking line at the top left of the screen when it boots. My pc specs since i forgot to add them: AMD FX-6300 Six-Core (3.50 GHz) Asus M5A97 Motherboard Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB (boot drive, windows 10 home 64 bit)
  3. Hi, This post is about converting my boot drive from MBR to GPT so that I could boot in UEFI mode. After doing the conversion (with MBR2GPT.exe) I had trouble booting and I couldn't figure out how to fix it in Windows PE, I messed around in the BIOS and got my PC to boot but now it shows 'Windows Boot Manager' in the boot priority. Is this just a problem with how the partitions are arranged? Any help would be much appreciated, I really don't understand what I'm doing. This shows the boot priority: Windows Boot Manager with the UEFI icon, followed by my HDD and dis
  4. I went out and got a new gpu from the store, xfx radeon rx 560. I'll put it in my machine tonight and let you know how it goes.

      GPU installed with latest driver, everything seems to be working fine. 

  5. Thank you for responding. I wish I had another GPU to try, but unfortunately I don't have any spare parts right now. If anyone has some recommendations on what GPU I should get as a replacement please let me know - I could really use some advice. Take a look at my PC specs to see what might work. I'm not really worried about my CPU causing bottlenecking if I upgrade my GPU, because I could just reuse the new GPU in a future build. Additionally, if anyone has recommendations on more comprehensive diagnostics I could run, please post here. As far as I can tell, my motherb
  6. Alright, I started my PC with the other monitor plugged in - with a different cable - and still saw the issue, in BIOS and after logging into windows. And to confirm that monitor was running 1600x900. I restarted again and went back to the original monitor. The image below shows what I'm currently using. Is it possible that my PSU is not working correctly and my GPU isn't getting enough power? I don't know enough about wattage, or really anything about hardware, but if my PC can display video and streams and things like that, then it would seem like a software issue. I know its a l
  7. I do have another monitor and another cable to try with. The monitor I'm currently on is 1920x1080, the other is 1600x900 I believe. I will try turning off my PC and plugging in the other monitor, then turning it back on and seeing if the BIOS still has weird graphical issues.
  8. Apologies for massive wall of text incoming Additional information: As I stated in the original post, these problems began on Tuesday, October 1st. Prior to this, my computer had been running fine with no major problem for several months. The last change to hardware was back in July or August when I added the Samsung SSD, so that I could download some larger games (Destiny 2, Black Desert Online, Guild Wars 2). Recently however I have been mostly just playing World of Warcraft Classic. On Tuesday, October 1st in the evening I started up my PC as normal and was playi
  9. Since last week, Tuesday, October 1st; I've been having problems with my GPU (or possibly something else). Here's what I'm experiencing: It is not possible for me to install any GPU driver, all I can do is use 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter'. If I install a GPU driver - either through windows update or directly from the AMD website - my computer will not be able to start windows. It will show the BIOS screen briefly - less than a second - then it will show the windows 7 loading graphic for a while, and then the screen will just go black. The monitor is on and detecting input but
