[bleep] no, im now getting new stop errors and a lot more frequently:

0X0000008E
0X00000024
0X000000FC

and after the last one it took me 4 attempts to restart windows.

Im assuming i have now got the wrong bios installed and made matters worse, but when i use gigabytes automatic scan to find the right bios my machine just shuts itself down before it can install.

Why would you think you have the wrong BIOS installed?

I said to install ONLY the drivers.

Do you have a regular Microsoft XP cd or one of those Recovery/Restore cd's?

Can you explain this a bit more?

my system board still says its running with no device drivers on device manager.

Exactly where (or how) does it say this? My Device Manager looks like the following:

(Forget the yellow stuff, known HP problem)

when i double click "system board" on the device manager it says there are no device drivers installed for this device. I dont have a windows xp or recovery, this pc was self built.

Ah, now I see. That is normal. On my Desktop I have one System Board entry and when I double click on it I also get a "No devices installed" message. On my laptop I have 5 System Board entries (no idea why though) and all 5 get the same "No devices installed".

What's important is whether there are any yellow or red marks under any of the listed devices.

Go into Control Panel and click on the "System" icon. Now, click on "Device Manager".

What shows up there?

Do all your devices/hardware show up? Anything with the yellow or red mark beside it?

Anything list as "Unknown device" ?

Are the missing devices showing?

like i said, nothing unusual, i have formatted my hard drive and reinstalled windows.

It seems fine but it runs a little slow, for a computer of my stature it shouldnt be, how do i optimise my performance, for instance when i play world of warcraft I get a 30 frames per seonc, the maximum in warcraft is 60 fps and my graphics card is more than capable of maintaining a 60 fps.
