Thread: GA-EP45-UD3R Video Corruption Under XP

  1. #1

    Exclamation GA-EP45-UD3R Video Corruption Under XP

    I have an EP45-UD3R I purchased in January of 2009. It has a Q9550 quad-core processor and uses OCZ Reaper memory (PC2 8500). I'm not overclocking the system at all. I noticed a few months ago that my video was getting "corrupted." One window on-screen would partially overwrite another window making an unreadable mess, or if I used the URL dropdown in IE or FireFox the URL list would appear partially. Scrolling down the list and back up would paint the list on screen. I removed my Sapphire HD4830 video card and upgraded to an MSI R6870 Hawk video card but got the same results.

    I had some extra RAM so I swapped out the two installed sticks for two identical replacements and got the same results. I finally took the machine back to an XP Ghost image I made after I first built it with the same results.

    I'd asked over on Tom's Hardware if anyone had experienced these issues and someone responded that a "lot" of people reported having problems with these boards going south. However, I've done a lot of web searches and can't seem to find anyone with these issues.

    So has anyone here experienced this problem?

    Before I would call it dead I would perform a full fresh install with a real install CD, not a ghosted image.
