  1. did you have question mark in control panel under peripheral added use gpu-z and report what you got http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/
  2. ya its haves a question mark right now
  3. then driver must be missing
  4. oh ya so on that Gpu-z if it haves a question mark next to the bus interface 2.0x16@x16 1.1 ? is that the question mark your talking bout?
  5. see the graphic card as pci-e 1.1 so get new driver and check bios setting
  6. Ya I see the pcie 1.1 with the question mark!! The thing tough is that I downloaded the new driver for the graphic card & i use the gigabyte driveragent & its saying the driver for the graphic card is old... everything below saying they are old also I already updated bios but dont know what settings to change if you can help me out? here the things that saying that old & not showing my diagram

    IDe ata/atapi controllers
    standard dual channel pci ide controller old
    standard dual channel pci ide controller old

    Disconnected Devices
    Generic PnP Monitor Old
    Hid- Compliant Mouse Old
    Usb Input Device Old

    I dont know why all this says old? everything else is check green meaning that the driver or something is good!! what can I do?
  7. try the windows update to if it get new driver
  8. also witch os 32 or 64 win 7 or other
  9. Ya I have done that a couple times after I updated bios & everything else lol im just bout to throw this *** out the window it shows there a 8 errors & cant fix the damn thing some how idk whats going on with it? I had the computer overclock to 3.8ghz now its suppose to be 3.2ghz now I reset the bios back to normal not sure if im overlcoking it right but it showed that it worked & i let my computer run for awhile then it just goes up & down the 3.8ghz so now its back at 3.2ghz but its showing 3.22ghz suppose to b 3.2!!
  10. I have Window 7 64 bit
  11. ok now did you went to windows update if not log on gigabyte asia for driver i am already having that open
  12. Yep already went to windows update & no drivers to update at all!! Can you sign up at gigabyte cause I cant find it no where to register at?
  13. what driver number you got for the amd chipset
  14. I dont have the Amd Chipset installed i thought that was only for FX processor? The one i downloaded last night is a ati catalyst verison 03.00.0765!! Do I install this for the amd phenom 2 x4 processor?
  15. catalyst is for graphic card chipset driver is for cpu and got 8.71 as number
  16. oh ya So do I install that for the Nvidia graphic card? is there a chipset driver im suppose to get or? the one i downloaded is a motherboard driver amd chipset 8 series win 7 that the catalyst driver
  17. the chipset was in 2010 with number 8.71 and catalyst driver for are for ati card so remove any catalyst driver and load nvidia driver for the gtx 560
  18. oh ya well i dont have any ati catalyst drivers installed only the gtx 560 nvidia graphic but its showing on the gigabyte driveragent that the following things are old see here a list

  36. Thanks Bud for the Help Props to you mann I just re did the computer over again Start over fresh everything installed right & I have one more question my memory is a ddr3 1600 its showing Memory 1600ll series 2048 mo pc3-8500f (533Mhz) is that the way its suppose to be?
  37. 533 x2 means the total speed memory is working now use cpu-z http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html
  38. oh ya so if i went to the bios & set the memory at 1600 it will automatic change the timing & everything the way its suppose to be set? I open up cpu-id & its shows that the timing 11 timing & i have 8-9-8-24 timing
  39. amd do not use the xmp settings try to set the timings same as the spd but with the manual option first put them a 1333 boot computer look memory in cpu-z then if you want you could try the same at 1600 if the machine do not boot correctly go back to 1333
  40. oh ya ok well i went to the bios & change the settings the only setting I change was the
    cas latency cl 8 clocks
    ras to cas delay 9 clocks
    ras recharge 8 clocks
    cycle time (tras) 24 clocks

    What bout the rest of the set up do i only change that settings of my what my memory setting is? & bout the voltage do I change that to 1.65v like the memory or leave it normal in the bios?
  41. do not touch voltage on memory leave it normal ,changing voltate is for overclock that has to be made with care
  42. oh ya ok so that the only thing i have to change right?? The cpu-id thing is showing the timing correctly!!
  43. keep going your on the good way
  44. sweet ya i just open up the internet & got a blue screen it then restarted idk why that happend!!
  45. does the memory was set at 1600
  46. ya the memory was set at 1600 on the first bios page then i went into dram config & change the timing to what it was suppose to be!! I have to ask you i try to overclock my cpu & i got it to 3.8ghz change the cpu voltage to 1.425v something like that idk if i did it right or not first time overclocking but um now now back at 3.2ghz its showing now core speed is 3221.6 & the bus speed suppose to be back at 200 now its 201.4 did I mess up my cpu?
  47. no it just work on is specs , never made overclock my self but i seen on the web that some people use the multiplier check if you could find something on your cpu overclock on the web or someone on the forum could not help you with this one(could star a new treat with ovecloking in title with your cpu)
  48. oh ya that whats sup & I might just have to do buddy & thanks for all your help man so far havent had another blue screen yet idk why that happend but I had alot of updates so maybe that was why?
