That is exactly the order in which to do it. Post back your results. If you are adamant about overclocking, I can help you with that as well. But first, we need you stable to correct any other issues.

Thanks,

It seems like I am unable to update the bios without help. I am not sure how to run it since the download was a .rom file

Under the BIOS updates, there are BIOS utilities, one of them should do it from within Windows.

It is difficult to find your information. We have to go back to your first post when it would be easier if we could just click on My System Specs at the bottom of any one of your posts.

If you need help, please fill in your system specs in your profile and not in a post in this thread: System Info - See Your System Specs


Run as administrator:
Try running the update tool as administrator: Right click the .exe or shortcut to the BIOS update tool, click Run as administrator.

Updating the BIOS:
See your motherboard manual Section 3.2. An excerpt is given below:

I have cancelled the overclocking, updated my BIOS, and installed drivers. What's next?

Run your system and see if you can get it to fault. Post back and let us know.

EDIT: Congrats, BTW, for getting that done!

Thanks for your help. The blue screens occur after hours of use, so I'll report in tomorrow.
