Hmm, the heat is a little high at 50 celcius, but not freak out high, but this is interesting

http://www.asrock.co...odel=K7VM2#bios

You are currently running bios 1.80...there was an update for bios 1.90, which specifically includes:

1. Update KM266 VGA BIOS to version 78.60.00.11.

As I am fairly certain that this is a video issue, that looks very enticing

Do you know how to do a BIOS update?
