OK the only difference between the 32 bit and 64 bit version is the size of the file.
Other then that the versions are the same. That being the case it is impossible for me to tell if you have the right bit version so lets see if it will update.
Please Go to

1: STARTand the click on RUN
2: Type in devmgmt.msc
3: Click Enter


Now expand the Video Adapter and then right click on the video card and then click on update driver. Allow it to check the internet and let me know if it updates or not.

If the above doesn't work I would like to try the following 2 things. Please do one and report back if it helped or not.


Tutorial for running chkdsk in Win 7 located HERE.



Please Run the PCPitstop.com OverDrive Full Tests

Here's how:

You must use your Internet Explorer for this procedure. (doesn't work so well in Firefox or others). If your machine is running Vista or Windows 7, you must Select IE to “Run as Administrator”. After completing PCPitstop OverDrive you can close your IE browser and re-open it Normally so that you are no longer running as administrator.

Go to: http://www.pcpitstop.com
Click on "Free Computer Check-up" listed below PC Pitstop OverDrive
In the User Login - Click on "Sign up FREE!"
You'll need to submit a valid email address and create your own password, then click - Create Account(button)

Now enter your email address and password to Log in, Select - Scan this system Now!(button)
You will then be asked to download an ActiveX component and allow it to install.
It is safe and does not compromise your privacy.
Follow the on-screen prompts to install the ActiveX and to allow the Full Tests to be run on your machine.

The Full Tests take about 2 1/2 - 3 minutes on most machines.
When complete, a Results - Summary - Recommended Fixes will be displayed.

Please post the URL internet address, from your Results, back here into this Topic Thread so that we can review the configuration and present performance levels of your machine.

Note: During the graphics 2D and graphics 3D testing, your screen will display some rapidly moving objects.
If you are sensitive to visual flashing, it may cause dizziness. Therefore, look away from the screen during that portion of the testing.

After reviewing the results we will be more informed and may be able to provide better recommendations for you to work towards improving your machine's performance.

While PCPitstop does offer a variety of Paid Products, the PCPitstop OverDrive testing is FREE. Please ignore the references to Paid Products. At WTT we prefer to provide manual solution instructions that you can apply directly to your machine.

Best Regards



Finally when this happens is it during playing a game or just doing normal stuff?
If during game play please right click on the game icon and see if there is a Run in compatibility mode option.

Nice board and my preferred mobo manufacturer. :D

Are you looking at new memory or wanting to use your existing memory?
That board uses DDR3 memory so it would be wise to make sure your existing memory is compatible with it.
Have you looked into the price for such a combo kit?

From post 5:

DIMM1: Corsair XMS3 DHX CM3X1G1600C9DHXIN 1 GB DDR3-1066 DDR3 SDRAM (7-7-7-20 @ 533 MHz) (6-6-6-18 @ 457 MHz)
DIMM2: Corsair XMS3 DHX CM3X1G1600C9DHXIN 1 GB DDR3-1066 DDR3 SDRAM (7-7-7-20 @ 533 MHz) (6-6-6-18 @ 457 MHz)
DIMM3: Corsair XMS3 DHX CM3X1G1600C9DHXIN 1 GB DDR3-1066 DDR3 SDRAM (7-7-7-20 @ 533 MHz) (6-6-6-18 @ 457 MHz)
DIMM4: Corsair XMS3 DHX CM3X1G1600C9DHXIN 1 GB DDR3-1066 DDR3 SDRAM (7-7-7-20 @ 533 MHz) (6-6-6-18 @ 457 MHz)

It looks like you will be ok. :D
Video card should be no problem but remember we still don't know if that might be part of the issue so just be ready in case.
Your PSU is fine and the sound card you have I'm not sure which one you have but according to post 6 it seems to be built on the mobo. Would you happen to know what sound card you actually have?

My suggestion is to use the Asus Xonar d2x as it seems to be better then the built on sound. :D
Both have 7.1 sound but the reviews on it say it is not as good as the X-fi sound card that came with mine. ;)

Good combination and a stable and fast cpu with the mobo. I think you will be extremely happy with it.
