I am having an issue with my current set up.
Excuse me if I have been a bit of a n00b.
I recently upgraded my hardware from an old Gigabyte LGA775 mobo with DDR2 to a new config with a MSI P45-C51 with 4GB of geIL DDR3-1066 RAM.
I simply changed out the motherboard, transferred the CPU and installed the new RAM, connected all the cables etc..
I started up the PC with no issues, saw the MSI boot screen, then was prompted to which OS I want to boot into (I have a dualboot x64 and x86 config), I booted into 32 bit as this is my primary OS.
It reverted back to VGA driver
and as soon as I logged in, I saw all my drivers
were re-installing. No problem.
Shortly thereafter I had my first BSOD, I restarted and checked the BIOS settings, and they seem OK. I went into my x64 now, I logged in and it also started installing drivers.
I tried playing a game after all drivers were installed (and after restarting) and within 5 minutes, the game crashed. I tried another game (COD MW2) and it also crashed after 5 minutes.
I am now also constantly getting BSODs at random... I tried using the /scannow thing and it did find errors and fix it. So far, I have been on the PC for about 45 minutes no issues, so I will keep you updated.
Also, my LED lights on my CM690 which indicate power and HDD activity are not working, they were working perfectly with my old board, and for about 30 minutes on this new one.. I am wondering if there was a surge of power that blew the LEDs?
