Got my new build up and running finally. Installed Windows 7 pro, installed the VGA drivers and the mobo utilities. Not connected to the internet with it at this point, but Im not real concerned about that yet. I have a spare G adapter, just want to get the thing running smooth first.
Couple of things. First, I attempted to run the Performance rating tool to see where I graded out, it got about half way through the test and then it blue screened. Now I had run that before I installed the VGA drivers and utilities, so I thought maybe that was why.
So I installed everything, and then I installed Sims 3 and I tried to test run that, the game loaded up to the menu screen, allowed me to choose where I wanted to start, but as soon as it went to load the actual gameplay portion, it blue screened.
Upon startup, I ran the memory diagnostic tool before windows started, and during the first pass, it said it found Hardware problems and to contact the computers manufacturer blah blah blah.
Does this mean something is wrong with my memory? The computer seems to be running good until I put a load on it beyond windows.
The graphics card came with the "VGA Doctor" which is telling me that my VGA card is ok, is there some test I could download that would be able to self diagnose what exactly is happening?
