I'm saying it's a possible that the motherboard has a defect when it comes to this particular CPU. With the firewire audio interface, you using a PCI card yes?
The ram shouldn't be a problem, or at least I've never heard of it causing an issue like this.
Not that I know of, other than trying it in another PC.
Yes, using a firewire pci card, but its the same problem with the pci soundcard and the firewire external interface.
Well, i think the same, only option is to try on another pc. I have a friend with a computer repair shop, i'll pay him a visit, see what comes out of it.
Thanks for all the help man..
