So Yes Iammykyl something like that. I got the new motherboard yesterday. Fully installed all by myself with success. Running windows 7 64, start up is about 10-12 sec running off the SSD. I ran into a few problems, had to update the MB wasn't reading the Ethernet port, I messed with BIOS and ruined windows once(my bad), and now I'm running into a problem with the graphics card I just did an update and need to shut down but I was waiting on the 107 updates for windows to complete. Just giving y'all an update.

Glad to hear you got it going. Posted Image

Video Driver updates are a pain, they cause more problems than any other update.
You can't trust auto system restore. You should always do a manual restore point before making any alterations.
AS soon as the system is stable and before installing heaps of programs, I advise making a backup image of the OS drive and a restore disk.

Edit, spelling.

Ok as before everything is running fine played my first game, SWTOR today worked like a charm except that my monitor seems to chop like in the middle the screen looks to go in two different directions, and I was trying to make a homegroup from my laptop to my desktop (through a router) and I cannot for the life of me get the two to link up I've tried all the initial windows trouble shooting and still I have nothing would like some of my games since I gave my external HD to a friend that deployed last week(hindsight is 20/20). I would of made a new post but Iammykl scolded me last time and I know this isn't the forum I just added to this since I'm still having Issues. Thanks for any help in advance.

oh and my monitor is http://www.tigerdire...4507&CatId=4420

and video card http://www.tigerdire...7605&CatId=7387

Try running through this tutorial for your home-group. http://windows.micro...start-to-finish It is something I have not attempted.

Did you have issues with the display before updating the video drivers?

To choose a mouse and Keyboard, do what I do, go to an outlet like Best Buy, so you can trial some.
