Windows 7: New installation Windows 7 keeps hanging

Actually, forgot to mention that, all I replaced was the PSU and it resolved the issue
I am still using the motherboard. This happened several years ago,, and have only replaced the video card for upgrade.

The last I heard on that problem with no answer on whether or not the power led was seen on on the board itself was that nothing came on. First no display and a beep code pointing at the card. Tnen nothing with the card removed pointing to the supply. New supply too? or board toast?

But all this was seen with a 2yr. old system not one just put together there. Sometimes new builds are just like new versions of Windows! You have to work out all of the problems first to get things going right!

Yep,,, and new hardware can be just as bad, with needing Firmware and BIOS updates.
It's a never ending cycle.

I know what the cpu will be for the next build being a quad core. 4-8gb for memory in mind as well as the case, supply, PCIe tuner card rather then PCI there since they discontinued the present model in.

Video card? undecided. Likely an Antec 900-2 case with another OCZ supply.

The real problem? which make and model board this time around! It will need to have 6-8 USB 3.0 ports and hopefully 3 PCI slots still for sound, nic card, and ?

The make of board however besides Asus is what will be pondered on. They seemed to have gone downhill over the last few years with a lot bad boards getting out.

Honestly,, I have used ASUS and ABIT most of the time. And I know what you mean.
I have been looking at Gigabyte and MSI. They have really (as far as I know) made pretty good strides to putting out better stuff.

However, straight Intel boards are very good, cause they don't try to put every little thing under the sun in them. If you just want a PC that is going to work with Intel stuff, and you aren't looking to overclock, Intel boards are very decent. However, finding the right mix of slots and ports could be a challenge.

I would be looking at running a Phenom II or possibly Phenom III X4 cpu not Intel model if AMD should have a new lineup out. That will probably be seen after I have a few new cases together however. That's usually how that works!

MSI, Gigabyte, or maybe one other alternate to Asus would be a thought. The thing I would miss right off of course would be the Asus support site which is generally easier to find things at.

From there finding the best memory along with the rest can be tricky at times especially with 8gb being considered for some CAD programs along with working with VMs a bit more. The 32bit 7 will still go on there as a second OS for running a few stubborn programs where the latest versions are not so good.

The fun there will be seeing how both flavors of 7 go on and act with a totally difference set up! Will that see a 1tb Raptor or SSD? Have to wait and see!

Gigabyte...maybe. MSI...I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. I have been told that MSI makes some good products, other than motherboards, but I will never know, because I have owned a bunch of MSI motherboards, and not one of them was any good. On top of that, their support stinks.

As far as other items like video cards MSI has been doing quite well there. I've been hearing mixed opinions on MSI boards with some raving about how well they worked for them.

Now for support when going to look up something Asus remains the better there. everything is itemized right from the start even when looking up a user manual or bios update. I don't hear many complaints about Gigabyte. Abit was an old favorite for many while their boards usually offer less features leaving Gigabyye and MSI as the two main alternates to Asus.
