Hello, so I just got a gtx 1080 founders edition from one of my friends, basically brand new, and I installed it a few hours ago. I am now running into “your pc ran into a problem, collecting error data........” I am running an i5 6500 with 8gb of ram. I don’t know if it’s my CPU not being able to handle it, or the ram amount, or both. I don’t know what else to do. Please help. Thank you

No reason why a CPU or ram would not be able to 'handle' that GPU.

You gotta update the drivers, does the PC straight up crash when it opens?

Do you have any more info on that BSOD? Like the error code or the message that it says?

 

Also, it's not a bottleneck in anyway. You're good in that department.

I can’t even get an error code anymore. Now it just won’t display anything, or when it does, my pre boot menu just freezes.

All drivers were updated. I did a whole power cycle reset and nothing works still.

I have the msi csm h100m pro vhl, and I’ve tried all the pci-e slots I got. I now figured out there is a red light above my ram sticks, and I have no idea what that means or why it’s on. I’ve never noticed it before either.

@hoiv there are three leds there they are labled too. cpu, dram, vga. which one is lit up?

I got it all fixed,was a pain and very annoying but ended up fixing it. Turned out it was the DRAM light. Took out a RAM stick, and my HDD, gave it a boot, ran the bios and everything, then shut it down, put everything back in and I was good.
