Graphics Card & Audio showing up as "Ejectable" under "Safely remove hardware and eject media"


Hey everyone,

I recently upgraded my platform from AM4 to AM5. I cloned my windows install onto a new ssd, put in the new board, ram and cpu (R5 7600), and am running two GPUs - an RTX2070 and 3080. Everything was going smoothly until I realized that both my GPU(s) and audio were showing up under the eject media in the taskbar, where a USB would typically be.


If I press eject video controller, it quite literally "ejects" my gpus and the screen resolution goes down, the system becomes laggy and I only get 1 monitor. The GPUs still show up properly in task manager and Nvidia's drivers. The "Video Controller" shows up as this:


and the "Audio device on high definition audio bus" shows up as this:


I booted into safe mode and DDUd both my nvidia gpu and audio drivers, reinstalled the most recent gpu drivers, and made sure windows, chipset, and audio drivers were all up to date. The system itself seems fine, but the weird behavior from the gpus continues as geforce overlay and gpu tuning softwares don't work. I've never had this issue before and haven't had much luck googling, most similar problems people have had were years ago with GTX970's and a faulty gpu driver from Nvidia. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
