Firstly, the reason I had to format my system (custom built - see the following link for the full spec and also the Speccy output link) was due to corrupted Windows files, as outlined here:
So now I'm at a stage where, on a completely fresh install of Windows 7 X64 Ultimate, no other software installed, no drivers installed, I get errors relating to the motherboard when I try to install drivers from my mb drivers cd. I put the CD in, it autoruns, I click yes on the UAC message and then it starts scanning my system (indicated by a "Loading" message and a spinning disk) but then stops responding before popping a message up saying that GBT Application has stopped working. I click ok or close (can't remember what options it has) and the Gigabyte drivers program closes. I have also tried going into devmgr and manually installing the USB controllers and Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller manually by pointing the driver update wizard at the motherboard cd (as these two have the exclamations next to them in dev mgr.) The network adapter looks as though it installs as it changes from "network adapter" in device manager to "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller" but when it finishes the install it states that it found software drivers but encountered a problem (The device cannot start - code 10.) If I try to manually run the chipset driver setup program from the disc, I get an error stating that Windows could not verify if the setup program is an official Windows Installer Package. I also get errors when attempting to install other drivers from the CD that it doesn't recognise my mb as a Gigabyte product! Definately is, came in a Gigabyte box and has been a Gigabyte board up until I formatted the HDD's at the weekend!
Does anyone have any clues as to what could be causing this issue and how to go about resolving it? Possibly a faulty mb or is it possible these problems could be caused by a knacked drivers disc? (Hopefully the latter is more likely!)
Thanks guys, if you need anything further, please give me a shout.
