Hello,
I hope someone can help. My son built his own PC. He recently bought GPU Nvidia Geforce Evga GTX 980ti FTW used. Installed it and all was great. He then bought a new CPU, AMD ryzen 5 5600 6 core processor.
Now the front fan runs continuously at 100% even when idle. The back fan does not budge. He believes it is faulty fans. I think drivers. Any suggestions?
Running windows 10 Enterprise.
i have a print out of his bios settings.

He just had trouble booting. He unplugged the ssd running windows, to go into bios, and the nvidia card would not boot. Removed the graphics card and put in a amd card and now it boots again.

He wants to use the nvidia card. He said he was half way through the bench mark when it died. I feel there is a driver issue that cause it to crash.

You should use DDU. I will explain the process to you below but you should watch a short how to video on DDU before you use it.

Download the latest driver for the 980 ti from Nvidia. Then download and install a program called DDU. Boot into safe mode and run DDU to get ride or all current Nvidia drivers and then run it again to get rid of any AMD drivers. Restart and install the downloaded driver for the 980 ti. Reinstall the 980 ti and see if it works.

You want to do this anyway to get rid of any traces of old AMD or Nvidia drivers that may be conflicting with the new 980 ti.

He flipped the switch. Fan started off at 100%. Before flipping the switch, he would have to open something to make the fan start.
