Hello Geeks to Go!

I recently purchased a new computer. My computer has been running very nicely until recently I realized that I am unable to stream video properly. :)

The problem occurs when i am stream video, (using a variety of different players WMP, Mediclassic, VLC, DIVX) after seemingly random increments of time I receive a series of rainbow Stripes running down my player.

The Rainbow stripes resembling artifacts will appear, freeze the screen , surround the cursor then freeze my computer entirely.

The problem is well documented Here .

I am aware it is a problem with my motherboard and have read that I need to install a bios update.

However I am do not know how to do this and am in need of instructions.

Is there anybody who can carefully step by step guide me through this process?

Thanks for your time :)

First provide us with your motherboard make and model. Also tell the make and model of your computer.
Give me an Everest Report. Click on "Everest Instructions" in my sig and follow the steps.

This will allow me to provide you with good instructions for flashing your BIOS.

Go HERE for the newest drivers for your Mobo.
The bios version that I see that is the newest is version P5N-D BIOS 1001
There is a step by step guide on how to upgrade your bios on the site. Just go HERE. Your mb would be in line two and is named: P5 (LGA775) series
