Slay, that sounds like a cool job! Ok, thanks again helping me to understand these new areas of computing and computer building.
Well, here is the update:
Now my computer will not even boot or post. I think I made some terrible mistakes. I suppose that is kind of obvious. As of this very moment, the computer is attempting to repair itself [Windows says that it is attempting to repair itself].
BSOD had this message:
What is really weird is that now this computer is not even permitting me to get into Gparted [I would like to start all over again by wiping everything clean and reinstalling Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit].
Somehow something changed the boot order as well.
I went into BIOS and changed boot order back to CDROM. Then rebooted with Gparted, and have now removed Windows 7. Presently I am reinstalling Windows 7 because I do not want to fight with a part of the OS that may be corrupted.
Here are the processes I did just prior to the BSOD:
Updated BIOS from f4 to f9 [system said it was successful].
Updated Windows 7 with all the new updates
Installed Windows Security Essentials
Installed all the newest MB drivers from Gigabyte
Installed Easy Tune 6 [I think this may have been a BIG mistake, years ago I installed this program and it created BSOD's too].
Installed Adobe Reader
Altered a significant number of BIOS settings such as multiplier, RAM timings, etc.
Here is what I hope to do in the next few hours:
Reset Clear CMOS again [done]
Reformat the HDD's with Gparted [done]
Reinstall Windows 7 Ultimate [doing it right now as I type on my other computer]
Download and install all the Windows 7 updates [will do when I wake up]
Be much more careful with things such as DO NOT install Easy Tuner 6. [never again!]
Ok, I am exhausted and need some rest. I will chat with you tomorrow if you find some time.
Have a good rest!
