I didn't know there was a known bios issue with this mb


If you do get a new mb be sure to reinstall windows
ohmy.. so you suggest I may get the same motherboard as I have now? I have noooooo clue how to install this, this is looks like super advanced techie stuff.

No, I didn't say that. I was just trying to explain what he was talking about: he was basically asking if you made any significant hardware upgrades without formatting and starting over afterward. So the answer is No, you only installed new memory.

However, I'm at a point now where I do recommend formatting and starting over. You'll need to boot from the Windows 7 DVD and choose the "Custom (advanced)" installation (screenshot).

After that, you'd need to make sure your hard drive is selected. Then you'd click "Drive options (advanced)" (screenshot).

From this, click "Delete", "New", and then "Format".

After that, click "Next" to begin the installation.

Installing windows is straight forward, but be sure to copy any files you want to keep


So you need a back up drive or DVDs of irreplaceable pics/music/vids/documents etc....


Its not hard, but if a fresh install doesn't solve i"d get a new mb. And a better one than the one you have

Ohmy thank you. I am doing this right now. I formatted the huge 320G disk however I had 2 disk drives, a small one ( system reserved ) with 100MB as well. But I used the large one for the format, was this the correct one?

Yes the larger one is the os drive, but anything on it is now deleted so I hope you had backups

Thank you Cravin. I have already saved all my files a few weeks ago when I reinstalled W7, but never knew I would have to format the disk.
And yea sounds easy to ya techies, lol. It took me a day or so to apply my heat sink and now hours thanks to 2 cables and another nice guy to put my power supply in here

Yup , took it off, cleaned it and used thermal paste. This awesome forum here is loaded with more awesome guys who walked me through this and I checked some Youtube videos as well. My motherboard was I think 125 heat

The 100 MB partition is something that Windows creates during the installation. It's kinda like a tiny 100 MB slice of the big 320 GB pie.

Anyway, did you do it exactly as I said by clicking Delete, New, and then Format?
