So i though i would get my system ready for the new hardware. So bios update was required and new system drivers.
So i updated my bios first. Them the problems started.
First i could not read cd/dvds, programs were loading VERY slow or not loading at all. Others were crashing. Then after about 8-10 mins the system would lock up. I played around with this for about 30 mins, going WTF.. I put all setting to stock speeds, still doing the same.
So i downgraded my bios to the ver i had before. Loaded up the system. BING works A1. reads cd/dvd. I even had to burn off a few things for a friend. Did all that worked like a charm. OC working, played a few games. Fine.
So i tried updating the bios a different way which i thought maybe it as a bad update or a bad download from the site. So i downloaded the update on my laptop, put it on the thumb drive. Updated it again. SAME THING, freezing crashing, the whole nine yards. It didnt even want to shut down i had to hold the power button to shut it down.
SO i was like i didnt update the system drivers yet. Downgraded the bios again. Go download the drivers which happen to be like 800mb. Go do the update, BAMN, BSOD, Asus system filter. reboooooooot.
So after some snooping on what asus system filter was i decided to try again. It installed all the drivers ok, but it said there was a failure on one of the drivers. went and looked at the logs, AMD raid express did not update the program. I was just like it was a program. No harm as i can just uninstall it and reinstall the program after i reboot. So rebooted the system.
NOPE.. BSOD trying to load windows, safe mode, system restore, all a no go. Now all that was on the drives is just my OS,games,apps. Nothing major so i was not overly worried about losing any data.
So im like WIPE IT ALL and start over now. So i go back to updating the bios. Already have the drivers for the chipset on a thumb drive so i can easly install windows again. But i was wanting a few things from the drives at first so i just did a second install of windows on the same drive just so i could grab my games folder, as l didnt want to download 50+GB of info. Copy it over to my storage drive. Then i did a total wipe of the system and installed windows normally.
So i have the new bios, new drivers installed now. And the damn thing works fine. So why was it that acking so weird from just doing a bios update, no hardware changed at all.
