I was about 5 minutes from switching back to my 5770, when I crashed and crashed and crashed. It was just like old times again. I hadn't changed a thing, but it took the same strategy as last time to stop the rolling crashes. I had to disable all USB in my BIOS, running my keyboard with a usb to ps2 adapter on it. No mouse ps2 on this MoBo, and its such a PitA navigating without a mouse
So, it seems I need to do something about my USB, but I have no idea what. I can't uninstall any drivers
, as the hardware isn't even listed in my device manager while its disabled, and enabling it causes a crash immediately after the OS loads up, if not sooner. I don't think this can be coincidence, and I see a few other hits on google for USB + Windows 7 problems... I'd appreciate any help you all may have. For now, it looks like I'm off to scour the Internets.
(On the positive side, there's a good chance my shiny new video card isn't dead ^_^ ) Thanks again
