I have had the BSODs for a couple of months now, and I am thinking that it is the mother board.
I have been to malware, windows vista, hardware, forums and have pretty much narrowed it down to the
mother board being sick.
Is there a step by step instructions , hopefully with illustrations, that show the proper way to change a mother board, and
what kind of after installation steps are needed , like OS, BIOS, CMOS....etc. ....?
This will be my first time so be gentle.

Thanks, Ron

We need to know more about your BSODs...

Download BlueScreenView (in Zip file)

No installation required.

Unzip downloaded file and double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program and When scanning is done, go to Edit > Select All.

Then go to File > Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

Compliments of Broni

How to Test your RAM



Guide Overview

The purpose of this guide is to teach you how to check whether your system's RAM (Ramdom Access Memory) is working properly. Bad RAM can lead to a whole host of problems, often which do not appear to have a single cause -- appearing as systemwide glitches, blue screens, and other system trouble. MemTest86+ provides a very good detection mechanism for failed RAM, and is about as good a test you get short of actually replacing the module itself.

Tools Needed
Please perform these steps from a separate, working, machine.Perform these steps on the problem machine.
  • Put your CD in the drive and configure your machine to boot to the CD. This is different on all machines, but it's usually by pressing F12 or F10 as your system boots, and selecting either "CDROM" or your cdrom drive. If you are unable to force a CDRom boot, reply with the make and model of your machine and I should be able to get you exact instructions.
  • If you've done it correctly, MemTest86+ will start to run automaticly, as shown below:
    Posted Image
  • If you want to be reasonably your RAM is OK, then allow MemTest to run until you see this message:
    Posted Image

    On the other hand, if you want to be completely sure your RAM is OK, allow MemTest to run overnight. Memtest will run forever until power is pulled on the machine.
  • Check the MemTest screen for any reported errors. Errors will appear as RED warnings at the bottom of the screen, similar to the following screenshot:
    Posted Image
  • Hard-Reset the machine, removing the MemTest disk in the process.
If you didn't get an error screen, Congratulations! :)

Compliments of Billy O'Neal.

Hey cryptodan, I have done the Memtest all ready with the instructions from the other threads (check out my previous topics on this same problem) and the RAM checked out
ok with out an error screen after 3 passes.

Thanks,

Ron

I changed topics per the instructions of the mod of each forum.
That's why I just asked for a step by step instructions for installing a mother board.
I only stated the cause for my actions to help explain why I wanted to know how to do this that's all.

Thanks

Ron

But here is what I do when I am installing a new motherboard or component:

1) Inspect the board closely and see if there is anything missing or bent.

2) install the standoffs on the mounting tray before making any connections.

3) Install the RAM, CPU, and inspect the board for anything that could have been bent during installation.

4) Wipe the motherboard tray with some rubbing alcohol to make sure all metal shavings are gone. Sometimes they can still linger.

5) Install the I/O Board.

6) Carefully place the board inside the case and securely fasten it starting in a criss cross pattern with the screws. So if you do the upper left hand corner first do the lower right hand corner next and do that with all screws.

7) Inspect the board again for anything that could have become bent.

8) Read the manual and make sure you know where the connections go.

9) Do all the above in a very well lit area.

10) Starting making connections such as the front panel and power connections do this prior to installing the PSU. The Power button could be stuck in a position to turn the machine in when you plug the power switch header in.

I ran the SeaTool Dos, I did the short test like the manual said would be ok for most , and there were no errors .

Thanks for the step by step, but I am a newbie and some of your nomenclature is not familiar to me.
2) install the standoffs on the mounting tray before making any connections.
5) Install the I/O Board.

Does the new mother board come with instructions and a installation guide in the box?

Do you know of a website that has illustrations like they have for a "clean install" (I've seen those) ?

Ron
