Mod Edit: Split from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic324305.html - Hamluis.

I was moving the cursor with the touchpad, but only just for a second. I confirmed that the touchbad ribbon is installed correctly. It didnt crash after testing for 20 minutes in safe mode (after which I was called away), which implies that there is a driver problem - but that is likely a red herring as the BIOS doesn't complete in dual core mode. Could be southbridge chipset I guess.

If I can flash BIOS and install chipset drivers in safe mode I suppose I'll start with that and see what happens.

[edit]

OK flashed the BIOS (1.9 is still the latest) and the latest chipset drivers from within safemode. Comp now boots in normal, and had had an uptime for 5 minutes and counting. No apparent conflicts in device manager, but runs really slow in single core.

Now I've switched back to dual core in the BIOS and booted to windows normal mode, although its started it still runs 'choppy'/slow... :flowers:
S'pose I should run a memtest at this point.

wow really weird set of circumstances. Hopefully it'll stay alive at least... :thumbsup:
