Unstable Windows after MB change

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I debated with myself where best to put this, but I really think it's a OS problem, so I'll start here.

Switched out my P45 & Q9550 for a Z68 & 2500k. Kept my OS on the SSD and backed up everything. Reinstalled components and booted of the SSD first short. Thought: "Great! I'm lucky for once, no problems." Yeh right.

System seems to be unstable. After being left for a little while, it seems to reboot by itself. Sometimes in launching programs (spybot, malware bytes, others) it takes a long time. CCleaner will hang at times. It also seems to hang at times shutting down.

I ran 2+ hrs of memtest86+ and no errors. Memory seems fine.
Temps all in the green. Pwr supply is good.

So what am I missing?
Did I make a mistake in trying to re-use the OS installation (read, should I give up, wipe the SSD & reinstall?)

Thanks for your thoughts.

Yeah you did mate, i had the very same problem as you not two weeks ago, fresh installed and its completely sorted, i know you might not want to reinstall your OS, but after a board change, its really best, it should sort it for you pronto GL man.

Thanks. That's what I was afraid of. I'll try it again tonight.

Do a repair install
post #5 of 9
Go into safe mode, do a driver clean of all drivers in sight and uninstall everything in device manager before rebooting into normal mode.

Edit: You are not mistaken by re-using the install, win vista and 7 may have problems authenticating if you change hardware and reinstall without booting the original, validated install. I definitely did. MS recommended booting it up so Windows can update the validation server with the changed hardware linked to your serial number.

I'd just reformat. Reinstall fresh drivers, should fix the problem you're having. Made this mistake awhile ago back on my 775 system.

Thanks for the ideas. I did back up everything that was important before hand just in case. I think I'll go with a clean install. I think this is the quickest solution. Just wish I had a normal version of 7 rather than the student upgrade special. Oh well.

Tried to reload off of the Windows disk and received errors. Drives all show up in bios and cables look good. Windows installer said that there was something wrong with my dvd hardware so maybe I have an OD that is going south? Goodness knows the thing has been used enough (in five different builds now? maybe six?)
