Hey All, Recently Ive Had Problems With My Motherboard So I Have Purchased A Gigabyte GA-7VA, But I Keep Getting Blue Screen Whenever I Try To Do Virus Scans Or Anything Which Uses Alot Of CPU Usage... My CPU Temperature Is High On The Motherboard But Thats A Faulty Reading... Any Ideas People??? Thanks Lee :)
are you touching the heat sink or the cpu? touching the heat sink won't tell you how hot the cpu is and touching the cpu will have damaged it in all likely hood besides it will have cooled by the time you have the heatsink off.
anyway thats a bit of a distaction because the system would probably shut down entirely if the cpu is the problem, the error is more likely to eminate from your memory chips, does the BSOD give you any details of the error?
I agree with AMD 4 ever, I have the newy Gigabyte GA7 NNXP with all the bells and whistles you could think of and I still get the occasional BSOD.
I have found the board to be very susceptable to heat and have had to install extra cooling even though the CPU temp is reported (Aida32) as being 40 Deg C.
Also, how many sticks of Ram do you have? Are they identical?
My problem is reported by Microsoft (after Error report) as being a Driver Conflict so a fresh install from scratch may help. Also, if you are installing the Raid Driver try leaving that off for the time being to eliminate it as the cause.
