ECS mainboards are notoriously unreliable and exhibit compatibility problems. your board for instance has seven revisions. Which leads me to believe they had numerous problems with it. What revision is your board?

1.0
2.0A
3.1
5.0
6.0
7.0
8.0

1. Install the latest BIOS v6.0c
2. Reboot in Safe mode (F8 on startup) and uninstall ALL video drivers in add/remove, then go into device manager (control panel, system icon, hardware tab) and under Display adapters remove all that are there.
3. Reboot in Normal mode and download and install the latest chipset (Via 4-in-1 v4.56v) and video (nVidia v77.77).

Since you reformatted you have to install DirectX v9.0c before installing any drivers (I never said to reformat BTW).

Did you update the BIOS and install the drivers in the order and the versions I specified?
