I agree, sounds like a BIOS flash is in order.

Can't say as I have never used it, but if MSI's Live Update 3 (not sure about the online version) is anything like Asus' AsusUpdate I would just go with it and do the flash from within Windows.

About the only thing you need to do is disable your anti-virus while running the update. Other than that for the most part the only way for it to go wrong is a power failure, which would bork a bios flash whether from within Windows or from a floppy/USB key.

I just tried the MSI online update tool, easy and simple I updated my bios, but... once pc rebooted, I was at the MSI page ( black screen/white letters ) and I had to press F2 for checking and continue. However after doing so, it was saying checking nvram... and nothing else happened for quite a while.. I decided to restart my pc but now for some odd reason I can't see my password login, there's a black screen and I can't see my mouse there. ( motherboard/windows does boot normaly. )

edit: right now im in safe mode with network

oh and I also noticed when going in the BIOS the date being 2005.. that means it didn't update at all right? Shouldn't it be 2010?

edit: Nvm, It was personal problem, since I have my pc and tv connected as one monitor, it switched to my tv instead for some unknown reason.

My motherboard is fully updated to 2.8 has GPU-Z shows, I'll respond later to see if anything changed for the ACTUAL problem ( Display driver stopped and has fully recovered )

That's because when you update the bios, it resets everything to manufacturer's default. If you haven't yet, set the date and time, and any other custom settings you may have set.

Good to hear your BIOS update was painless. I hope this fixes it, but if it doesn't, at least it is up to date. We can continue troubleshooting any other routes.

Your not getting any BSOD's are you? just freezes and driver error?

BSOD? what is that? All I know is whenever I play a game, screen randomly freeze for several seconds then come back to normal or crashed some game, thought, it happened way often on high graphic details game such as starcraft 2

Sorry.... BSOD is Blue Screen of Death. it is a screen that pops up that requires computer restart and has lots of useless looking info on it. If you get one, there is a log file that is generated that will usually point to the cause of the system failure.

Have you updated microsoft directX to latest version?
Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime

Your crash and revert is prob memory related - do bios update and manually set up the voltage/speeds for your memory sticks

I also suggest you read thru these peeps blurb about drivers and consider reinstalling 10.4 drivers till Ati sort themselves out!

Oh, no I don't have those, I've experience them on another pc long time ago, thought my problem logicaly seems to mean the graphic card heat is getting too high and momentaly stops to cool it down, but CCC shows a normal temp. At the moment browsing on the internet, it's around 55įC

edit: I have the latest directX ( 11 )

bios update of memory? I don't get it there :O?

Also, I remember having the issue with 10.3 ati driver

I don't recall you having Direct X 11 games - so it might help if you download at the link which updates DirectX 9,10,11 for your DirectX 9 games!

I never mentioned Ati 10.3's!

In your bios - instead of 'Auto-detecting' memory voltage/timings try entering the correct ones manually.
