"The BIOS is not fully..." Error with EVGA 780i - Page 2

This board is really solid and runs great when it is running great (I know... it's tough to explain). It just seems to be somthing every other week since it was build. I'm just hoping this issue was due to using beta drivers. Somthing that's never happened on my system.

My P35 system (sig) has never BSOD once on me, locked up, or anything even if it's folding/gaming/torrent/IE/Email 24/7. It's just a freakin solid brick that does what it's supposed to no matter what.

One thing that is odd, when I went to the add remove program and clicked on nVidia drivers I remember it always asking if I wanted to uninstall the display adapter, OR the chipset drivers, OR BOTH. Today when I went to uninstall the display drivers I didn't get any such question. It just uninstalled the display adapter drivers and nothing else. Very odd.
To be honest, I'm a bit skeptical that the optical SATA drive issues with BSOD's is driver related. I uninstalled eVGA/Nvidia's SATA drivers for my optical drive. I'm using Microsoft's drivers and I'm still getting BSOD's. Less frequent than before, but still getting BSOD's. Also, I booted the PC with with a Windows DVD and it caused a BSOD right off the bat. I guess it could still be caused by MS drivers with the NVIDIA chipset, but like I said, I'm still a bit skeptical.

BTW, my system is completed stock at the moment. I haven't even had a chance to OC anything at this point.

Do you have a 780i board? Just noticing your sig rig. If you do have a 780i, how can you tell if the BSOD was from overclocking or not? What did it say in the BSOD message? Just curious in case I decide to OC later.

Thanks,

Tae

Hey - did that happen on a 780i board? I'm still semi happy to hear this though... The OC I had on it was stable with Prim95 etc for 8 hours. All the temps were well within the limits. I guess maybe a bit more VCore? Hmm....
