I think it would be best to run it, even though it is time consuming. We will at least know the ram is OK. As far as the bios, I would set it to optimized defaults for Windows 7 and set the sata controller to AHCI. If you install in IDE, it's OK, I just think AHCI is better. If you set it to defaults, set the boot order to DVD/cd as first boot device and the Hard drive as second boot device. That way there will be no trouble booting from a CD or DVD when necessary. Also, look at your motherboard and look at the holes for the standoff screws, then look at the case and see if the standoffs are an exact match and there are no extra standoffs in the case.

OK great - I'll set Memtest away in the next few minutes. What would you recommend as the most optimised BIOS for windows 7? I'll set the Sata to AHCI for starters but anything else to look out for? I don't think this is the most sophisticated of bios but there will no doubt be a load of things I wouldn't know what to look for?!

If you set bios to optimized defaults (a setting in BIOS) it should set everything to optimum values. When in BIOS look at the screen, it should have an option of optimized defaults (F5 on newer boards and possibly that one too) if you can't see it, there should be a help option in bios. Try that and see what it says.

Running the test, The only option I saw was F1 for manual and f2 for default set up in the bios. I went for sutom and the only change I mase other than to set time and date was to set sata to ahci (it seems to want to default to IDE for some reason!

Every bios has a default built in. The earlier ones seems to always be IDE. Some still are, but the trend seems to be going to the default being AHCI.

Paul, I know you don't need to know any of this, but let me explain. As you can see, I am an overclocker, which means when I am overclocking, I continually make changes to bios. Sometimes you set the wrong thing and there is no way it will boot into Windows and sometimes even post. What we do is reset CMOS, which you just did by removing the battery, enter bios and set everything to default values. Then we can boot into Windows and make sure we are stable by running all the tests we have had you run. Then we can go back and start again from default settings. That is why I always set defaults or optimized defaults, if that is there. It is the Motherboard's Manufacturer's settings that they believe will make the safest settings for the board to run properly. Wise overclockers know the risks and are willing to take them. Others, like you, want the safest settings to make your computer run well. That is what defaults is for.

Thanks for you continued help Steve! I'll post up the results of the Memtest in a couple of hours - I've just let it run so it should've done 10+ passes by then!

Update! I've just come across these support drivers for my Asus P7H55 board that are specifically for wiindows 7 64 bit. i've no idea why I haven't found these before, I thought I had, but it looks like a different version of the bios for starters! I thoought the bios i was using was the most up to date but I think I'm wrong!

You post # 17 (Speccy) shows your bios as Version 0504
16/7/2010.

What bios have you found and where did you find them.
I couldn't find anything newer when I looked the other day.
You must be very careful with bios.

Paul, I don't see any BIOS updates that say for Windows 7. The drivers may be different, but not the BIOS as far as I can tell. The link you gave opened up to Windows 7 32 bit, you have 64 bit.
