So, I recently purchased a GTX 760 for my desktop PC. Apparently I need to update the bios on my ipisb-ch2 (chicago) motherboard for this to work, so I download the update .exe from the offical HP website.
When I ran this, right as the update process started, I got a BSOD titled "special-pool-detected-memory-corruption". Ive had the PC for several years now, and its never ever had a BSOD actually. Now get this- the computer works fine after I restarted it. I uh, havent tried again considering that generally a crash during a bios update is lethal, but does anyone have any guidance for me?
I ran the memory test that comes with windows, and it reported zero errors. The PC is here on the HP website, and the only thing I have changed is adding a SSD. Everything else is still stock. The graphics card I am trying to use is also listed as compatible with this motherboard, but only after the update.
Thanks for any help!
