Alright, After months of waiting I've finally got the parts I needed to upgrade/get my rig running again. The problem I'm having at this moment is my computer completely froze, (Then I hit reboot) and the resolution had changed to 1280x1024. I turned my computer off and took the side off and took out my Graphics card, I then changed it to the other Graphics Card slot and booted back up. It ran fine. I did some research into the errors I got which where
Driver Power State failure(Which I always happened when coming out of sleep mode (I've turned sleep mode off and no longer receive this error))
DPC Watchdog Violation (Which is what came up the first time my Graphics card didn't run properly (Correct resolution))
So now, when I go into device manager, there's a yellow explanation mark by my Nvidia 8800GT and it says there's a Code 43 Error.
I don't know what's causing this or how to fix it.
Some Background: About 5+months ago I spilt a liquid into this machine and fried my MOBO. Since then I've bought an M5a99x evo Motherboard, 8gb 1600mhz RAM and an AMD 6 core 3.3Ghz Processor. I'm running a 500GB Sata 3gbs HDD and an 8800GT with a 750w PSU with 50a on the 12v rail.
I don't have an OS as funds are really low, so thats why I've given Windows 8 a try, ontop of that, I want to upgrade my HDD and GPU (-->560ti)
Any help would be really great, thank you.
(Will supply any info requested, just bare with me, thanks)
