Re: Z97-ws

If it has a discrete GPU, make sure onboard video is off in BIOS. Set it to Auto or Off. Try Auto first.

FWIW and may be too late:

If you have the original OS install for that rig on the original SSD/HHD, image it and restore to the replacement SSD.

I am almost certain you do not have a hardware problem. Sounds like drivers. I have done what you did with the video cable and not had these issues.
