    First make sure you have no Back UPS on this system that may be malfunctioning (causing you to not get power you need). Make sure you have adequate power for your needs-there are some sites that help you figure your power needs for all your parts, but I dont remember which sites they are off hand. You can google for that or ask for help( I may be available tomorrow for a few) As This is a new build I would try to remove board from the system and bench test it with the bare minimum parts and a static free surface(cover table with the packaging that wrapped your board) and assemble minimum parts use this site as a guide How to Bench Test Your System - Tech Support Forum on bench testing..... Try not to use old sound card and find another video card even if its PCI from your ancient build ok try that and get back to us
    Whoops I just saw your sig for the PS at 1000Watts sorry nevermind power calculations....

    Nice to see you got going on this, I was about to suggest removing the sound card during the install to be sure this was not part of the cause.

    So did you ever decide on what you think might have been the issue here?

    Let us know if you need further help!

    I'm still not totally convinced that the problems I was having are solved. I did have win7 installed before with plenty of random freezing and boot-up errors. I will test this installation for the next couple of days if everything goes alright I will report back. And if it doesn't go alright...then I'll be back looking for more help.

    If you do need more help let us know!

    Artdrivers is our AMD Specialist here, so I would get a hold of him for you as you may likely just need to adjust some BIOS settings per your hardware and he would be best to advise you on that. JUst let us know though and I will PM him to come help if he does not stop by on his own.

    Yeah me too the onboard sound is good enough to get you started error free.
    So which device do you think is causing the problems or is it a case short or cabling problem I am just curious
    Also BIOS settings posted here will help us further with any issues you have. Bad BIOS settings can cause problems and may have prevented you from installing OS Use the BIOS templates here http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/giga...ettings-33613/ use the one that matches closest to your board and replace values with your values the post them back here Thanks

    I really have no idea what was causing the errors. After I reinstalled the vertex drive in the system I made all the changes in the bios. After that I had the windows 7 installation lock up on me twice. I don't think its a bad case ground as the only component I removed was the vertex. All the cables are the same too. The only thing I can think of is I moved the memory to the slots farthest away from the cpu. Everything has been running good now though, I even had utorrent running overnight. It wouldn't run for more than 30 min on the last installation. Right now I'm a happy camper, thanks for your help.

    Unhappy Re: Help Please!!!

    Hi,

    I bought the same motherboard and installed it yesterday. I have installed a 965 BE on it. I am having the EXACT same issue as you. Except I have not gotten past the "expanding files part" How did you solve it?

    Specs are as follows. All the following hardware is from a previous system (EXCEPT the motherboard and CPU of course), and all are working - only question is the RAM compatibility, but it has always passed memtest checks. I moved from an ASUS 790i SLI.

    AMD Phemon II 965 BE
    GA MA790FXT-UD5P (bios ver F7)
    2X CM3X2048-1333C9DHX
    Thermaltake 1000W PSU
    Creative XFI Championship ED (on PCI-X slot)
    XFX Nvidia GTX 295


    What I have tried:

    Using only 1 stick of ram in different slots. Tried swapping sticks of ram (since I have 2). No dice

    Set the voltage to 1.7 on the ram as specified on the ram stick

    Tried increasing my NB VID voltage all the way up to 1.75 as I read this on this thread. This seemed to make a marginal difference in stability - but that just might be luck of the draw as the freezes are quite random. On the normal setting it would freeze at 0-1% when expanding installation files, and at 1.75V it froze at 15% (which was the last attempt).

    Please help. I can RMA the board but it is a headache, and I want to be sure it is the motherboard and not the RAM (I do not have spare ram to test with).

    Thanks

    More info


    I tried running memtest86+ 4.00, and it freezes immediately upon loading. Cannot even get to test the RAM. It is simply showing a blue screen and on the top left says "Memtest86+ v4.00", the + is flashing but no other response from the system.


    Help!
