Motherboard: A68HM-K
Cpu: AMD A6 5400K
4GB Ram
GTX 560 TI
Windows 10

Fresh install onto a Samsung SSD, whenever I try to install the Nvidia graphics drivers I get a DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION blue screen.

My suspicions are a faulty PCI port (2nd hand motherboard, seller said it had been 'repaired'). Something to do with the fact it's an APU and a gpu working together maybe?

I have flashed the latest bios, tried a different hard drive, SSD firmware is up to date and have disabled nvidia audio drivers. I have also tried an older graphics driver.

Windows update tried to install the Nvidia drivers also but the same BSOD happens.

Help!

See if you can install them while in Safe Mode. You can also try removing the AMD drivers and then install the Nvidia ones in Safe Mode.

Please follow this guide here on reinstalling your video card drivers:

Thanks for the suggestion! I am wondering if there is a conflict going on with the APU and the GPU so I'll try what you suggested and report back!

I ran DDU to uninstall any amd drivers. The Nvidia drivers then installed in safe mode but then my machine hung on a black screen after rebooting and would not boot at all, had to reinstall windows which thankfully doesn't take long with an ssd!

I'm out of ideas though

Are you on the latest Windows 10 build?

Where are you getting the Nvidia drivers? From GeForce Experience?

I can only assume so, I used the windows media creation tool to get the ISO. I've tried getting the drivers from Experience and directly downloading them. Same problem with both.

I've tested the GPU on another machine and it installed just fine, I tried taking a stick of ram and a different hard drive. I'm thinking it might be down to this 'repaired PCIE slot' on the motherboard, could that be the issue?

Thanks for helping me out, bought a new motherboard and the GPU drivers installed just fine, think I'm putting it down to that bad PCIE port.
