    Changing out the MB may lose you your Win10 licence ...unless they believe the MB "died" certainly you will need to "Reactivate" by phone , just make sure to Claim it's only installed on 1 PC . Since FEB I have had to do it 6 times but only spoke to a real person once , but got reactivated each time ok , however that was all before the "Free" win10 upgrades finished.
    Right but getting one or two new mainboard in with the *(current and new ) Windows 10 activation troubleshooter is virtually a given .......
    I just did that moving my 14905 (now 14915 ) Insider build to a clean dual boot install activation ~ Aug 24 to the new PC and a bare silicon SSD install .....just telling it what I thought it wanted to hear easy peasy ....SRSLY

    Maybe I missed something, but after installation of the new graphic card, was the BIOS reset to default values?
    Normally should do when installing a new graphic card, RAM or CPU.

    Sorry for the late reply (I've been really busy with work). After looking at the majority of the replies, and seeing as the thirty day return window for Amazon from which I got the video card from is approaching, I have decided to just uninstall it, return it, and possibly get a different card that is more compatible with my system/BIOS. Thanks to everyone for their help!
