issues with my new setup

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just upgraded my motherboard, processor, and memory and can not get system to boot.

Current Configuration:
-AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor FD4100WMGUSBX (NEW)
-ASUS M5A88-V EVO AM3+ AMD 880G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard (NEW)
-CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) (NEW)
-nVidia GeForce 9800 gt video card
-Seagate 1TB HDD
-Windows 7 64-bit OS

The issue is that I had reinstalled windows fresh on the HDD. Then upon completing, the computer BSODed just about every 4 minutes, each for a different reason. I had used the dvd from the motherboard to update drivers and such and the problems continued. I decided to try again from scratch, however on the ASUS screen, whenever I try to hit F8 to go to the boot menu or delete to get to the bios, the system just restarts. Hoping someone has had this issue and knows of a solution, or at least a direction to go in.

i'm leaning towards you need to do a bios update..also..check the ram..set it at 1333 with proper timings..see if that helps
