My 730 Compaq Laptop crapped out last Saturday, so I decided to build a new desktop. AMD 1090T x6 Black edition with a Micro ATX MSI 890GX board. 4GB Kingston 2000mhz Ram, basic hard drive Hitachi, A black Silverstone Micro-ATX case. 23" LG 1080p 2ms response time 50k:1 D. Contrast (Better specs than my 55" Samsung above it).

I had problems with it even getting passed the BIOS. Found out I had to reflash the BIOS to accept the CPU, I also had problems with setting GPU and overclocking items at "Auto." Once I got passed it I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Loaded all the drivers ATI Catalyst, MSI's drivers, monitor drives. I was in the action of downloading WOW 7.5gb. Left the room, and when I came back I had a BSOD. When Windows finally was able to boot back up to the normal screen. Everything that I had installed EVERYTHING was gone. The screen resolution was set as low as it can go, and I still get BSOD.

I changed the BIOS to "load optimized defaults," and load fail-safe defaults... still got BSOD I did a search and saw that someone directed another person with a 890gx and BSOD to run a HD diag, and Memtest86. No problems found.

Don't know if it makes a difference, but when I run a Advanced test the program freezes, and there are vertical stripes on the monitor. Quick test displays no errors

I went back to Fry's and replaced the HD, it was on sale so I bought another HD and ran a raid 0 configuration. Tried to install Windows 7 again and once it got to the check and install updates I get a bsod 0x0000007e. Every freaking time its a different error.
