What driver is producing Startup errors? If you list your hardware I can help you look for the relevant drivers.

My system specs are up to date down in the right bottom corner. It's one of the MoBo chipset drivers. It produced two when I was installing it and i found them later in Event Viewer after I got x116.

I'll look into it in a sec and link the specific downloaded driver that produced the error. Not sure if it's something to worry about, but after yesterday I'm a bit jumpy about MoBo drivers.

Edit. It's a "Setup" error, not "Startup"

Ok, I think I know what might have been an underlying problem here. I downloaded wrong drivers.

As it turns out motherboard P8H61-M LX2 that I have is not the same as P8H61-M LX2 R2.0. And that correct one and drivers for it can't be found on a regional Asus site (like asus.com/uk), but only on the base one (asus.com). And if you simply write "asus.com" or get there from google result you'll be redirected to the regional one.
Drivers are probably mostly the same (since they are working) but not entirely, hence the whole shitstorm.


If you could follow that 1st link above, take a look and tell me which one I should d/l and install it would be great. I'll probably reinstall the system once again just to be sure, anyway, now when I already backed everything I need up.

Trying to install the incorrect drivers explains a lot to be honest, always double check and then treble check what you're doing, it's always better to be safe than sorry. Sometimes it's best to learn our lessons the hard way though.

Onto your drivers. After performing a clean install of Windows, download the first two drivers linked below (Chipset and LAN) and install them, then run all rounds of Windows updates, installing and rebooting as required until no more are offered. Check Device Manager to make sure there are no next to any of your devices, if there are post back and we'll get that sorted.

Do not install AI Suite just yet.

Given the issues you're having with your GPU I'd remove it from the PC prior to the clean install, let's get Windows up and running properly before we tackle that problem.

I removed my post in search of better information.

It's very hard to find information on this power supply but I'm going looking.

At best the power was a big (?) when it was new.


Gav I have no doubt this computer has more than one or even two problems.

Once the wrong drivers have been install and possibly the wrong chipset and possibly corrupted bios it's all over but the crying.


Update:
I can't find two sites that agree on the specs of the power supply.
I can't find any reviews from the sites I normally use for such reviews.

I'm done looking for information about this power supply.
If I can't find sites that have reviewed this power supply good or bad I'm thinking one of the problems is the power supply.

I'm pretty sure you're right Jack, I think it would be best to get the hardware down to an essential minimum with a brand new clean install with just the essential drivers loaded and all updates installed then work from there. Maybe that way we can identify problems one by one as they crop up and tackle them without the influence of other problems clouding the issues.

With a proper clean install and Windows 7 Updates should take care of the drivers but the tinkering with motherboard bios is still a mystery and could be one of the system killers along with the power supply.

ASUS AI Suite is another program looking for a place to cause damage.
