I have no idea. I have an Asus board and flashing is simple. Extract the downloaded file to a USB, go into bios, select easy flash it will read the file and ask if you are sure, click yes and in about 1-2 minutes, it's done. How Gigabyte does it, I don't know. Some of the older boards were slightly dangerous, but the newer boards are much safer and easier. It makes it even safer when you get a board with dual bios chips too.

That makes sense. I'm not sure what's up either. Do you have any other tricks or what's your verdict?

I've asked for someone else to come look at the dump files I said I couldn't get anything from. Driver Verifier is supposed to make it crash which is why we emphasize a restore point, But, the point is, it is supposed to make it crash and trap the offending driver. I can't see where it trapped anything. I'll be honest. If it were my board, I would do a clean install and just start everything over. Wipe the disk completely clean and start over. Start off with a clean slate, and it is not as bad as many people say if you prepare for it. Get all your installation disks, activation numbers, installers you have to download, and your Drivers. The longest part will be installing updates unless you have a hardware problem.

I will say, something is not quite right with your rig. There is absolutely no way 8 passes of memtest should take you 20 hours. My backup rig will do it in about 9. When you run memtest, the OS, hard drive nor drivers are involved in any way. It runs completely out of ram. You've run memtest, I would run your hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic program, depending on what CPU cooler you have, run Prime95 (tests the CPU) and run Furmark to test the Graphics card. Then if you pass all of those, it is either the PSU or the motherboard, if you do, in fact, have a problem. Windows 7 is not XP, and installations go pretty quick and easy.

My take on it, and the way I do mine. I'll try to fix it, but you can search for weeks just to find the problem and more time trying to fix it. If I can't fix mine in a couple of hours, I do a clean install. Once I get the drivers and updates done, I can be back in operation in a couple more hours usually. That's not all of the software I'll load, but I can be pretty functional pretty quick. All the hardware tests I ask you to run, I run them all the time, just so I know my rig is solid. With no hardware problems, a clean install is not a big deal. As I see it with my rig, I can spend weeks and weeks trying to find the problem and fix it, or spend less than a day and be fully functional.

Alright Essenbe, well I will give those a shot. I was starting to look at motherboards and processors anyway since they are now the oldest thing in my box!

Thanks again for everything!

tell me the manufacturer of your hard drive and I may have the link to the diagnostic program. ahere is the link to Furmark for the video card stress test. The only exception I make with the tutorial, is Speedfan is out for me. I use EVGA Precision X. But, with any stress test, you have to watch it constantly. The temps will go very high, very fast. If they go too high, stop the test. That goes for Furmark and Prime95. I use Core Temp for Prime95.

If you do decide to rebuild I will be willing to help with that. Just if you are an AMD fan, I'm not great on that but do know a little about then and know some people who are excellent with them. I'm not a fanboy of either side, I'm a performance nut. I used to have AMD, but went the Intel route. The day AMD comes out with a CPU that can beat Intel, I will be back with AMD. So, you decide which is best for your budget and what you want it to do. Tell me and I'll try to get you a few choices.

I'll have to look into the hard drive tomorrow and see what I can find.

Do you have the links for these tests? Also what are we hoping to find with the tests?

I'm not an AMD fan and only thought of it like Chevy and Ford. If it comes down to rebuilding I appreciate the help!

Video card Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

I'll need to know the manufacturer of the hard drive to let you know. Device manager, expand the disk drives should at least give you the model number. This is a pretty good test for any drive Seatools for DOS, The instructions are below the link. You boot into the CD or USB drive you create. SeaTools for DOS | Seagate

CPU test, but it is brutal. If you are using the stock cooler, you will have heat problems. Free Software: Prime95 download - PrimeNet

What tool can I use to monitor the temps of the cpu and gpu? And how hot is too hot?
