    yer iv tryed 1 stick but no luck...

    its says main bios checksum error. receiving from back up bios
    thats after restarting after succeeding in updating bios

    what i dont understand is why the windows instalation disk wont load up. iv even tryed a different cd drive.

    surely the motherboard cant be broken as it worked fine in my comp!!

    EDIT: cant belive it the windows instalation disk finaly booted up, but then it rebooted on its own!!! :(

    What BIOS version are you flashing? Try a different version, and be sure you have your memory voltage manually set before the flash.

    I think LSD has gotten to the crux of it. I've experianced these kinds of issues several times, with Win 7 and Vista 64 Bit. For me it was all down to RAM settings. For example on my last build (EP45-UD3P with E7400 and 4GB od Corsair XMS2 DDR2) the system was unstable at optimized defaults, even though XPM had set the RAM timings and voltage to spec. Not only did I have to disable XMP, I also needed to set FSB manually, and choose a RAM multiplier lower than 1066 DDR to procede with the install.

    Thia was before any over clocking was attempted. Windows was more than happy to install again a couple of days later with the CPU over clocked by over 1GHz to 3.9GHz and a slight OC on the RAM with tightened down timings.

    Do as LSD suggests and set RAM voltage manually. If that does not work then you can also set the primary timings and the RAM multiplier manually too. Cycle through the RAM multipliers until the projected RAM speed matches the rated speed of your memory.

    Set the ram volts and timings manualy, also the ram multipliers corretcly and it still freezes at "starting windows" from the installation CD

    All is out the case to check for the case shorting it out and still no luck :(

    What am i doin wrong? My mate is waiting for his comp back.

    Thanks

    If the BIOS always restore the back up after successful flash there's probably a problem with the MB.
    What is the version of BIOS after it recovers?

    Did you set performance enhance on standard? If not please do, then try setting tRD (Static tRead Value) for each channel to 8 or 9 for now.

    As for BIOS recovery, please look in the BIOS and on the MAIN Page press F9 for system info, and see if MAIN and Backup BIOS are the same, if so that would be why it recovers the same BIOS.

    Although it shouldn't be doing that, if it runs fine afterward then it's fine to use as that is the latest BIOS.

    Ok looked by pressing F9. Yes the main and back up are both F10b. Is there a way of changing te Back up?

    I have set the static values to 9 andf just giving the windows installation a go again

    Yes, you can change the backup by flashing the main back to an older BIOS, then updating the backup to that older BIOS by pressing ALT + F12 at startup
