I have just built a new system (specs below) and I've hit a snag.
Since I put it together, the system will not shut down when it should, so I decided to get chipset drivers and BIOS up to date. The motherboard came with BIOS 1005 installed so I installed the v6.65 drivers so that I could flash the BIOS up to 1007.
Since I did that, the system will load Windows and then somewhere between 5 and 30 seconds later it will BSOD with 0x000000FC. When I boot into safe mode it doesn't crash any more, so I can only assume it's the drivers at fault.
Has anyone else encountered an error of this nature? I imagine I'm going to have flash the BIOS to an earlier level and reinstall an earlier set of chipset drivers. Oh, and it still doesn't turn off when I tell it to.
Any thoughts or comments welcome!
