My System Specs


I had the same symptoms with a Biostar TA690 mobo. I guess we get what we pay for. I've replaced it with an Asus M2A-VM and the problems have never returned since then.

When you get a Biostar mobo that works properly, they run great and OC high given their cost. However, after buying about 5 Biostar mobos, I think they have like a 50/50 hit or miss ratio.
