So I get the machine delivered on Friday. That night I slap in my Windows 7 x64 Ultimate cd, load it in, and start installing the drivers that came with the systemboard. Everything is going great. I installed Sapphire drivers from the CD. Great. Load some basic software (Office, Nero, Avast AV, Malwarebytes, etc...) nothing fancy. Run it through Windows Updates, everything seems golden.
Figure while I am at it, I'll update the graphics card drivers to the latest (10.12). Reboot after and it seems to run ok. I go to load up World of Warcraft and at about 1% the system hangs. No BSOD, just hangs. I reset the box and try again, same thing.
I figure it may have been the graphics driver so I remove it and put on 10.10. This seems ok, the game install completes but the system freezes right after. I pull the video driver and associated software off and reboot. Try to install from the CD, system locks up. Reboot, system locks up on the desktop after a short time.
During all this I did get one BSOD with a 1E stop code, no driver listed. Any time I try to install the video driver (from the CD or version I downloaded) the system just freezes.
I am also noticing the system taking a long time to POST between some of the reboots. Sometime it comes right up, others I have to leave it off for a minute. So last night before bed I threw in Memtest to check the RAM. This morning before work I checked it and after 9 hours there were 0 errors. I let it go while i am at work today and will check in on it again when I get home.
While at work i downloaded all the updated drivers for the systemboard. i figure when i get home I'll format and try again to see if it helps.
Anyone have other suggestions before i wipe this clean and start over?
