Firefox crashes all the time (like, every 15 minutes). I've tried playing some games, but those crash too after a few minutes. "_____ has stopped working"
I tried testing with prime95 and get "rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4" errors on all workers within a few seconds or a few minutes.
I tried tests with OCCT. The first CPU test says "error detected on core #__" within a few seconds. Never the same core number. The second CPU test crashes the computer after a few minutes and gives the BSOD error "page fault in nonpaged area" or "IRQL not less or equal". I watched the temps while I was testing and the cores were sitting at around 50 C at 100% CPU usage.
I ran memtest86+ for 13 passes and it hasn't found any errors yet. I do have 16GB so how long should I make it test? And should I test all sticks at the same time or just one at a time?
I didn't change any of the bios settings expect boot drive priority, all is at what it was at default. I didn't try any OC or anything like that(I wish, can't even get it to work at stock!).
I installed the newest drivers for the mobo and video card. Except there was 2 mobo drivers(Marvell Preinstall Driver, Intel SATA Preinstall driver) I couldn't install because all that was in the folder is a .oem file and some sys and dll files... uh how do I install that? On the mobo website it said "Note: Press F6 during Windows setup to read from floppy." A floppy? That stuff we used 10 years ago?
I ran windows updates, and installed everything. Also installed java, abobe flash player, net framework, active x, and all that jazz.
