    I've been telling Gopher that he's β€˜doing it wrong!’ (i.e. slightly differently from the way I do it, which is self-evidently the only proper way) for years! 😁 But all joking aside, he does sometimes drive me bonkers with his A.D.D. style of gaming. Does this sound familiar: Gopher wonders aloud whether you can do X in this game, while the game explicitly tells him how to do X in bright neon green letters on the screen. Gopher takes a wild guess how one might do X in this game, while the game explicitly tells him how to do X in bright neon green letters on the screen. Gopher, having failed, decides that clearly you cannot do X in this game, while the game explicitly tells him how to do X in bright neon green letters on the screen. Repeat from step 1 with a different X.

    So I was wondering

    Are we ever going to see Jack go through The Great Divide?

    Exactly what I thought. The Problem is with Geforce you can not load drivers for something you don't have install on the computer or at least that is detected on the computer. I had the GTX 980 installed and working and then could update and download the latest drivers for it... but I think it was only for the 980. UNtil I can get my computer to "seeing" the 1080 installed I can't download drivers for it. I got to get the MOBO to see the 1080, well I say I got to get... they actually have to get the thing to work now...not me. I am searching now to see if this MoBo has any history of issues with the GTX 1080 Ti.

    That would be logical ... however I can take the 1080 Ti and put it in my other system (from which it came out of (in working state)) and it works fine there, detected as a GTX 1080 Ti. So just to recap the GTX 980 works fine in both Old and new system, the 1080 Ti works in old system but not new. Now a difference is the MOBO and Win 10 vs Win 7. I have Win 7 in the old system and have installed Win 10 in the new system. I think it's the MOBO and or BOIS... why? I don't think it's Win10 Because the POST does not even get to Win 10 Boot, the Mother Board BIOS is what is not finding the video card. And remember the MOBO/BIOS finds the GTX980 on PCIe Slot #1 (so it's not a dead slot) and the GTX 1080 Ti does work in the other system... So it just about has to be the BIOS??? Anyway, I took it to Micro Center today, felt like I was leaving my child at the doctors πŸ™ . They said they should let me know something by Friday. Looking on the bright side, this extra time will give Rockstar time to fix more of the issues with RDR 2 .

    building my new PC

    UPDATE: The Build from Hell So it's not working..completely. Got all the parts, assembled them the Video card (GTX 1080 Ti) is not detected. Post beep 1 then 3 short. Checked everything... all looks good. I moved DP cable to MoBo onboard Display, Intel UHD Graphics 360, installed Win 10... did updates and all. All good there. Here's my notes, so when I call ASUS for trouble shooting, I have the story. Building new desktop I am re-using my old GTX 1080 Ti. It works in my old system, I have tested and re-tested it works! The old system has a EVGA 750 PSU. Setting up the new system with all new EVGA 750 PSU, Z390-E MOBO, I9 9900K CPU, water cooled CPU. M.2 NVME Drive (boot drive) I installed the Video card (1080 Ti), check power cables, double checked by now I have removed and installed this damn card 6 times. When I start up the computer, I get post beep, then 1 long beep and 3 short beeps, Meaning no VGA display detected. I have: Changed out PSU with a new EVGA 850 PSU (just in case it was under powered) Updated BIOS Install another GTX 980 Ti (it works fine) Install "Geforce Experience" for the 980 with Drivers (all good) re-installed the GTX 1080 Ti (did not detect, POST 1 long and 3 short beeps) reinstalled the new EVGA 750 PSU & reinstalled GTX 980 Ti (works fine) Installed the GTX 1080 Ti back in to old system... it works fine. Read online about enabling "Above 4G Decoding", which I did , and still nothing. So tomorrow, back to micro Center... pay $40 for this to be someone else headache. It pisses me off because I can put the GTX 980 in it, and it works, I can put the GTX 1080 back in my old system and it works... If you have any thoughts let me know I will be taking this to the shop around 12 noon EST tomorrow. This is the last build I will be doing.

    In case anyone is going to watch this expecting breaking news.... well... this is not the video for you. If you are looking for a good ramble... then this is excellent.

    building my new PC

    So now I am reading in the ASUS forums, that a few other people have had issues with 1080 Ti and 2070/2080 and this mother Board, when they also have an M.2 drive install in M.2 slot 1, but it's not confirmed. One guy had the issue and solved it by moving the M.2 drive (card) to the slot #2 ... something about when you use M.2 slot #1 on the mother board it lowers the PCIe slot 1 to a 8 instead of 16. but another person said theirs was working fine in that configuration. I am going to give it until Saturday before I start by something new and demand my money back on this crap... if they can't fix it.
