You don't uninstall your current ones, you install these over them. IF they need to be uninstalled, they are uninstalled as part of the setup wizard.

And like I said:
Quote:
Download all your newest ones into ONE folder and install the chipset FIRST, reboot, then the LAN, then reboot, then the others.

420w sounds adequate for that system...

Just install all your drivers and see how it goes...

i installed all the drivers and it is still skipping.(well the only driver i don't have is the muitimedia driver for my AIW 9800 pro but i do have the graphics driver updated)

and when it freezed up the hard drive lights come on and stay on until it stops skipping.i read something like it could be writing to the hard drive and not to the ram or something like that

OK, download memtest (http://www.memtest86.com/memt32.zip), or a similar RAM diagnostic to check your memory for errors. Also grab hold of CPU-Z (http://www.cpuid.com/download/cpu-z-126.zip) to tell you information about your CPU and RAM...

Are you using Service Pack 2? I've heard a lot of people having problems with it...

SP2 runs just as good as SP1 with me. Shouldn't be a problem.
