Yes i downloaded the latest drivers
from MSI and video driver
from ATI, installed smoothly, windows updated fully. Can drivers affect the motherboard bios before windows even loads, because i couldn't even access them with no monitors working.
First time i used Seatools i did short test on both drives and couldn't scan the C drive as it said S.M.A.R.T had been tripped, and E drive reported as good, but doing a Long test last night on this E drive(now my main C drive) didn't pass, i wish i wrote down the results, i will be doing another test tonight as it takes fairly long and give you exactly what it reports.
Built this computer sometime in 2006 replaced the video card 2 years ago with a Sapphire HD5800, always been in the same spot with ample air flow and never abused.
