Hi guys I purchased a Asus GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER Dual EVO OC 6144MB GDDR6 PCI-Express Graphics Card last qeek and to my delight it arrived yesterday. Today I began to install it and all went well until I turned on my pc and I noticed the green dots everywhere and resolution change. The resolution is stuck at 800 x 600 and the dots are all over the display. Iv looked up how to fix this problem and nothing has worked. I read that this could be a dead gpu. Any help is welcomed

and if you take the card back out and reconnect the screen to the mobo graphics port, everything goes back to normal?

what driver did you install for the 1660? the latest off the Nvidia website or was a CD supplied?

do you have access to another PC that you could put that card into and see if it repeats the problem there as well?
what warranty came with the card?
