I built my brother a computer and he has been having major problems with it. I have made 3 computers, and I have never had anything as bad as what he is getting. When the computer runs, it runs awesome. The the problem is the thing keeps crashing. I would LOVE some help on solving this problem, as I am having difficulty in knowing what it is.
Sometimes being boot up, the audio doesn't work. There should be an icon with the description: ati HDMI input/output properties that doesn't appear. The icon looks like his TV.
As the computer is left on, crashes will happen more frequently.
The computer is plugged into the TV with a hi-def cable
Blue Screen of death will show up frequently. Not as frequently as programs crashing, but a couple times a day.
Graphics Driver (he says he is not sure if this updated, because the computer kept crashing.)
all the Windows 7 updates (save for Live essentials and Live essentials 2011. they are just add-ons)
If you check the MSI's QVL that memory isn't listed. Follow the link and check to make sure I just didn't miss it. I also went to G-Skill's web site and tried to use their memory configurator but your board isn't listed. But again, check it for yourself. I would get something from MSI's list.
