Yes.

And ALWAYS do a fresh install when you switch platforms.

And if you don't, don't ask people for help before you do.

you do not need to do a fresh install with windows guys I don't know why you are telling me to do a fesh install. The game is running 150 fps now I updated my bios and found that the cpu was declocking frequency and voltage and it was having trouble posting. It kept loading defaults and don't know why it was doing that. I also reinstalled the game. All my other games I ran would play at 200+ frames without any drop. Solved the problem. Still is having trouble posting when I restart. I am just going to wait until the next revision. So when you have a driver/system error/bsod/virus is the windows 7 disc everyones diagnostic/repair tool? rofl

Hi there,

Glad you got it fixed, your big hint was in your first post when you said that it was booting twice. I'm really surprised no one picked up on that to be honest. I was just about to mention about the BIOS de-clocking on a failed OC attempt but you found it out now so that's cool.

I don't believe his computer was booting twice. Based on what he said, he was experiencing the common issue with ASUS P67 motherboards where the ASUS splash screen shows up twice during the bootup process. I believe this issue is fixed in the latest BIOS and also can be fixed in earlier BIOS with a simple setting change.

I don't think this is what he was describing either. The BIOS was not declocking after a failed OC attempt. With the ASUS P67 motherboards, you have the option of keeping a permanent OC setting (i.e. 4.5Ghz) where the CPU stays at that frequency at all times, or you can have the CPU automatically idle down to 1.6Ghz when not being used heavily and only turbo up to the OC setting when needed. It seems that the OP wanted to keep his overclock at his chosen speed at all times, but for whatever reason the BIOS was keeping the setting where the CPU would automatically throttle down. So, in the middle of his gaming, the CPU would throttle down briefly for a few seconds, causing the FPS to drop substantially.

Glad you fixed the game problems, but I hope you don't do computer work for people and get payed for it.

No one competent would build a new system and just drop their old OS install on top. That's just ignorant and lazy. Chances are you will run into more problems down the line.

Although I agree that the preferred methodology is to do a fresh install, it is by no means necessary with Windows 7 and in fact can cause more headaches in certain situations than it prevents. A lot of the "must do fresh install" thinking is simply a relic from the past when it was absolutely true.

With Windows 7, there isn't much of a difference between swapping in a new motherboard and swapping in a new video card. In both cases, the OS sees that the hardware is different and installs the necessary drivers to run the new hardware.

I would also agree that most of the time things seem to run fine when you switch over while using Windows 7... However when you start having problems that nobody else is it's probably time to do a fresh install.

I was able to do it once with a new mobo - same chip and everything else and it worked fine, however it didn't work well at all when I switched from my AMD setup to my SB setup, I had to reinstall when I did that.
