Closed Asus M5A97 freezing problem? Tags: Asus BIOS Motherboards Last response: August 18, 2012 12:14 PM in Motherboards Share kangbyj8481 August 18, 2012 2:53:46 AM Hi, all recently I purchased Asus M5A97(regular) mobo. When I booted my pc up using this motherboard, after bios sequence pops up and goes into "starting windows" sequence. Then, during that sequence after like blue and yellow part of window logo pops up, screen goes black and few seconds later I'm back again to bios sequence. I can use the UEFI bios just fine but problem happens when it's booting into windows. I don't think there's a problem with the harddrive because I plugged it into another system and worked fine. Any suggestion on how to fix the problem? I'm using AMD phenom ii x4 965BE Coolermaster hyper 212+ XFX Radeon HD6870 Patriot G2 2x4gb 1333mhz memory OCZ 650w fully modular psu 500gb WD 7200rpm drive More about : asus m5a97 freezing problem abekl a b Ĉ ASUS a c 125 V Motherboard August 18, 2012 3:29:59 AM Did you do a clean install of windows after installing the new Motherboard? It sounds like your old drivers are conflicting with the new motherboard. kangbyj8481 August 18, 2012 4:38:49 AM sorry im not that familiar with the clean install, basically what i did was I just plugged the hard drive from my old comp to this new build Related resources Asus M5A97 MB system hangs when installing OS - Forum ASUS M5A97 R2.0 VERY STRANGE ISSUE NOW HAVING ... - Forum Constant freezing O/C fx-8150 CPU with AM3+ ASUS M5A97 ... - Forum M5A97 - Forum Problem with new rig ASUS m5a97 - Forum Can't find your answer ?
