I just installed some new parts for my computer and a clean format on my HDD-
Motherboard: MSI 970 Gaming Motherboard
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8gb DDR3 2,330 MHz (I believe on the MHz)
CPU: AMD FX 8350 8-core 4.2 GHz MAX with Wraith Cooler
HDD: Stock one from HP 2009 or so
GPU: MSI R9 390 8gb
PSU: EVGA NEX750B
OS: Windows 7 64 bit
Not sure if I'm missing anything else. The first thing I did was run MSI Live Update 6 and installed all the drivers it allowed. One driver won't install even though it says it did. Then I installed the GPU drivers and got this error-
Been waiting for about 4 hours to install a single Windows update, normal searching never ends either, that this site said you should do to speed up the updating-
When I reboot the computer, it gives me the first error then 10 seconds later, it BSoD. I run windows normally and the computer runs just fine and gives me a Windows error. I haven't touched the BIOS apart from setting loading priorities. I set the mobo to slow mode because I was having issues setting up the mobo. So when I finally got it set up, I went to bed and turned off the slow mode, got a BSoD and I'm not 100% sure if that was the issue. I instantly changed it back but it still occurred, so I'm pretty sure that wasn't the issue. Also, not sure if it's the slow mode doing it, but my Windows rates my processor at 5.9, which I know is wrong. My old quad core was almost the same rating.
So what do you guys suggest? Should I be using Windows 10?
