I just built my computer and did a windows performance test. I got the result of 1 for the graphic card. I decided to install the graphic card driver... once done, I rebooted and decided to run the windows performance test again.

I did it twice and both time the system shutdown without warning or messages.

Here is the specs of the machine:

- NCIX Gaming Bundle Deal Intel Core i7 960 & MSI Big Bang Xpower X58 SLI DDR3 Motherboard
- XFX Radeon HD 6850 Fansink 775MHZ 1GB 4.0GHZ GDDR5 2XDVI Display Port HDMI PCI-E Video Card
- Samsung Samsung DVDRW 22X SATA Lightsc Retail *IR-$5*
- Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
- Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
- Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM
- CORSAIR XMS3 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Model CMX16GX3M4A1333C9
- SanDisk Ultra SDSSDH-120G-G25 2.5" 120GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
- hec Zephyr MX 750 750W Peak Output ATX12V V2.3 / EPS12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

I have to admit that I also have another weird behavior is that I cannot have Win7 update, neither activate (I have internet working). I got error 0x80072f8f. Could this be related?

As for the shutdown issue, follow this guide step by step in order and see if that does not fix it.

For the "weird update issue", this may fix it.

I am at work and not in front of the computer at this moment. I can tell you that I have connected the big 12v ATX (JPWR1) and also 2 plugs near of the mother board which had both 8 pins (JPWR2-3). I have also put a 6 pin pci-express in the third location (JPWR4). I have highlight them here :

Since I can boot and go on Internet and see images, I suppose the graphic card is well inserted into the board.

I have set the card in the slot #5

The manual suggest for 1 card the slot #2 but the slot is to near of the pci-express (the small one) that come for the sound card of the package of the motherboard.

Here is the manual information:

Do you think it really matter that I pu it in slot #5 instead of #2?

Concerning the problem with the graphic card, this one has been fixed by itself. After 2 days, I were able to register my Windows 7 and were able to update. I guess I were unlucky and the servers were down. Now, all is updated and I can use the graphic card without a problem and even if the card is in the slot #5.

Thank you for all information.
