PSU is 450W...

I wonder, if GA-MA78GM-US2H rev. 1.0 is compatible with GV-R575D5-1GD (Gigabyte's HD 5750)? Maybe, I should update MB's BIOS?

Where should I get drivers for GPU?; from Gigabyte's site, or from AMD's one?

BSODs were spotted firsty after GPU installation... The game is called M&B Warband (v1.126, latest today).



THIS COULD BE HACKER AS WELL... WE CAN DISCUSS IT LATER ON.



Thank you very much.

P.S. Where should I report hackers? Found one from Russia...



Additional info: also have some minor BIOS disorder issues; so I'm minding hacker... BTW, it could be also a game issue (Warband 1.126); some people report as well (sorry for heavying you so).

First, download the correct driver from: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx, save to desktop.

Use "add/remove programs" or program manager to run the ATI/Gigabyte uninstall utility for the drivers

Then run: Driver sweeper: http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=745 Directions here: http://www.guru3d.com/category/driversweeper/

After you get everything cleaned up, reboot and click on the drivers you downloaded at the beginning, follow the prompts and select "custom install" so you can uncheck the extra garbage ATI packages with their drivers. You need CCC and the audio driver so don't uncheck those two.

See if that helps, post back if you are still having trouble.

Updated driver to latest (taken from AMD's site).

Played Warband 1.126 all day - no reboots. Played in SP, not MP; placed block all connections with Firewall, during that.

Question: should I risk going to MP? Is it actually a hacker?

Thanks a lot for help. Waiting on further advices... :thumbsup:

Changed BIOS settings to -default- Fail-Safe (from -default- Optimized). Should I keep it that way? How to get a better understanding of such terms of BIOS?

...I have a GA-MA78GM-US2H (rev. 1) motherboard, with Award BIOS.

Other thinkings:

Kernel fail? PSU voltage not enouph?

Thank you very much! Hope, reply won't take too long...

Edit:

Also could be a "haxdoor" virus... :thumbsup:
