  1. yes the amd a10 is a 64 bit processor so it should work
  2. Thats the point, it is a 64bit cpu so technically it should work
  3. And yes 8.1 x64 setup fails at 89% so I used my 7 x64 disc to install the os but it too failed at 21%

    If you have 2 sticks of RAM try running on one at a time or run Memtest 86
    Run a diagnostic on the HDD, it's possible to buy new and be DOA.

    it could be a bad power supply. they will make your computer freeze randomly when they are bad or faulty
  6. I never cheap out on PSU, its a Seasonic S12II 520W, the bios chip was faulty so I rma'ed the board and its working now.

    How did you diagnose BIOS Chip faulty? (Curious!)
  8. My neighbour works at Asus so I asked him to take a look at that board he said that the bios chip was faulty and the RMA personnel said the same.

    Ah. Sadly we're not all blessed with neighbours who work for Asus, so not realistic to recommend as best answer!
    Guess if it's not PSU, RAM or HDD the board is the most likely culprit...
