kuba, yes, I hope its something simple and obvious as well, because as you note, the faulting process is long, tedious and not much, if any, fun. Unfortunately, its always the last thing we try, the last place we look, that reveals the source of the problem.
I note you say you are checking the BIOS for temps. That's virtually useless as by the time you can get back up into BIOS, the temps will have changed significantly if they are any bit out of whack. The only things you might detect would be really extreme conditions which I believe would already be obvious by the escape of the magic smoke, the release of the mystical flame and/or flash of the holy bolt of lightning.
Do get some monitoring programs so you will have real-time access to temps, voltages, fan speeds, etc. There's lots of freeware that is very good, ie - SpeedFan, CoreTemps, NXSensor, CPU-Z, Gcpuid. Its good stuff to have even if you don't have a crisis. I keep a couple of CDs with the latest versions of all my favorites so I can hand them out or install them at any time, anywhere.
so here's the update:
after i installed the new 7600gt, i left the computer overnight, and in the morning i got a BSoD, which said the following:
***Stop: 0x0000000A (0x00000054,0x0000001c,0x00000001,0x80501ff4)
I hope this would help to someone, cause i have no clue.
i think i'll a buy a new sound card, because some guy at asus forums had similar problems as i do.
so any suggestion to what to do?
edit: windows prompted me an error report thing, that it unexpectedly terminated or whatever, but here's the link(and it sucks)
