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!

Have you tried it in Safe mode? In normal mode.


(In normal mode, your computer may be running some program that's incompatible with the BIOS update program).
