can't eliminate it until you test it i guess though so ill say highly unlikely.
errr...not exactly true...
Often when I get in a hurry and I forget to plug in the 6pin power into one of my cards I will run into lockups...obviously it is a lack of power in my example and easilly fixed...so it is a possibility that low power could give you lockups. Though I dont think its the case for this particular problem. 3 questions:
1) Can you post all of the system specs?
2) Did you install all of the motherboard drivers?
3) After you install an app do you have any problems running the app? How stable is windows when you dont try to install something? Can you launch explorer, a browser, notpad ect without lockups?
