Think I'd wait on installing SP1. Do everything else suggested above, and see if your machine gets stablized first.

Firstly, thank you guys so much! It's 11PM here and I've got work in the morning, so I'll try this as soon as I get home tomorrow and see what happens.. Guiltily, I didn't even realise that there was an SP1 out for Windows 7 yet =[!

I'll try everything you said, and hope for the best.. you guys are both US-based I guess, but I'll send you both a 5 Amazon voucher if it's sorted for your troubles... I really appreciate you helping out guys!

Will report back tomorrow, and thanks once again!!

Thanks, and I really appreciate your help. I'm not a newbie to fixing PCs and such, but hardware and driver faults just confuse me totally, and to be honest, they scare me too! I was really worried that my HDD (a few months old!) was DOA and that I'd have to shell out more for a new wireless card.

I'm still at work now (where I spend most of my life it seems!), but I'll be home in a few hours and I'll be doing everything listed to try to sort it out... damned thing sure is frustrating when you're in the middle of something and it just dies on you... I guess it's not doing the hardware much good either.

Anyway, thank you so much, and I truly do appreciate the help.. There's no way I'd get it sorted without you guys. I have no idea how you guys learn so much about the hardware side of things, it amazes me, because it seems so hard to track down errors to one particular thing that's easy to fix.

Anyway, provided the PC doesn't explode, I'll post back shortly!

Thanks again!

Hi guys. I uninstalled avast, updated all drivers except realtek and logitech (couldn't see which to get, so was gonna ask you guys). I also installed sp1 and restarted and when it first booted up it BSOD, but now when I boot up it comes up with a 'amd data change...update new data to DMI' and wont go any further. It used to flash up with that before, but only for a second. Now it gets stuck on it and I cant use the pc :-(.

Am posting this on my iPhone lol, which isn't so easy. I've taken a picture of the error and will see if I can upload from iPhone.

Cheers guys. Am really stuck now :-(. I'd really really prefer not to have to format again as I'll lose a lot of stuff, but it's not looking good :-(

Look in the BIOS for a setting called update ESCD and disable it.
This is taken from another forum so I'm not sure what that is.

@Scott - it seems others are having this issue too, but "appears" to be easy to fix. Watch carefully during the boot process for the prompt to enter the BIOS Setup Menu. Typically, you must press the Del, F1 or F2 key, depending on who makes the BIOS. Once there, simply make sure the date and time are correct and your drives are properly identified. Then, and this is the important part, you must make sure you "Save and Exit". If you don't Save, then you will get the AMD message again.

For some folks, they needed to reset the BIOS, but try the above first.
Also taken from another site. Try these first and report back the results

Hi there. Got into bios eventually, and I can't see a setting similar to the one in the first quote, but regarding the second quote, when I go onto 'Basic CMOS setup' and under 'IDE channel 1 Master', there's nothing listed and when I click auto to make it search for the HDD, it doesn't seem to fInd anything. I guess that doesn't help if it's not picking up the HDD, but it obviously must have been at some point because it was running the OS etc.

It's getting more and more bizarre now lol :-(

Also, more oddly, under the advanced settings I can specify what the system boots from, and it tries CDROM first and then the HDD. I don't have a cd drive anyway, but there's an option called 'Hard disc boot priority' and under there my HDD is actually listed... So is it finding the HDD after all, of has it just 'remembered' a setting? Lastly, my OnChip SATA Type is set to AHCO at present also if that helps at all?

Also, just seen this - the error I was getting was abot DMA and one setting on the bios here is 'ECP mode use DMA' and that's set to 3.

Thanks again for your help guys... I can't believe how much has gone wrong since installing a wireless card and a hard drive!! Thanks again for everything!

This is kinda out of my expertise so I'll need to find someone experienced with this type of stuff to look this over.

So I assume your using an IDE drive and not SATA correct? Have you tried checking the other IDE channels? Have you checked to make sure everythings plugged in? By ACHO I assume you meant ACHI. You can leave that alone. You can try changing the 'ECP mode use DMA' to channel 1. Try changing the boot order to boot to the hard drive first. And lastly, try resetting the BIOS to defaults or fail-safe and make sure you save an exit.

Well it's strange because I use a sata cable, not an IDE cable so I'm a bit confused there as there's not any options for setting sata information. It wot let me change that setting either, it just tells me it's on 3, but doesn't let me alter it. I'll try the default settings anyway, see what happens. Do you think ifs worth resetting the bios?

It wouldn't hurt to try.
