Driver issues? I built 2 computers exactly the same (xfx 750i, q6700, 4g ram, 500g seagate sata drive) within 2 hours of eachother. The first is working flawlessly and no problems. The second is not. I loaded windows xp-no problem. I load the drivers for the mb and gpu, restart the computer and BAMM!!! cylces over and over with a blue screen......... Got it to work momentarily by using the windows xp disc to repair windows. It repairs a boot sector and everything is fine. Start it up, use it for a moment or 2, try to burn a copy of my disc and BAMM!!!! Again.. starts to cycle through the blue screen of bloody hell.

    It was happening with 2 different ones. Just posting to let anyone who reads this know the solution. First the issue is with the 750i Nvidia drivers. After extensive research, if you use the 790i Media Shield drivers then there will be no issues. Nvidia does not acknowledge the problem. After more research and forum searching, I found that it is a common problem with MANY Nvidia motherboards to include, all 6 series, 750i, and some 9 series motherboards from Nvidia.

Try the second hard drive in the first computer that's working. If it works all right then you probably have a RAM/MB problem.

New built pc biostar ta75m+ motherboard. System shuts down when I try to load windows.

Hello the homepage is here:

I think the harddrive has a lot of bad sectors, and needs to be replaced.

It should not take 4 hours, to format the drive.
It normaly take 15 to 20 minutes, depending of the size of the drive.

Any sata drive will go for this mainboard.
Try not to buy seagate, western digital is better.
Check also the bios, for proper boot settings.

Good luck

It sounds like you're not concerned about the data on the drive, just the drive itself.
If that is the case, the drive will still be under warranty. Most seagate drives have a 3-5 year warranty.
Take the drive back to where you purchased it and they can get it replaced for you. Alternatively you can send it to seagate direct, however there may be a minor courier fee.

I've never heard of downloading a driver for a internal hard drive. What I do know is that you have to make sure that the jumper is on the correct connections. example if your main harddrive is a master then you should put the jumper on the two pins that read slave. If you have a sata harddrive then you would just have to connect the data cable and the power cable without doing any jumper settings. well hope this helps.

XFX 750I Motherboard w/ SLI Can not locate the SATA Driver ( Can not load WIN-Vista ) Help

You will get to a point in Vista set up where it asks you what drive/partition you want to install to. Obviously the window which should contain the drive information is empty because Vista can't see the hard drive yet. At the bottom of this windows there's a "Load Drivers" button. Make sure your XFX motherboard CD is in the dvd drive then click the Load Drivers button. Now you should be able to browse the CD. The SATA drivers will either be in a folder called RAID or a floder called SATA. Just click on the correct folder containing the drivers and click OK. Vista should now load the SATA drivers and your drive/s will appear in the window.

If this doesn't work then I suggest you register on XFX's website and go to the support section and download the driver from there:

More Hard Drive Space needed

well kristy, in installing the new HDD for your PC, just find a free SATA cable (that usually comes with the HDD when you buy one) the a free power pin, shut the computer down, plug both in, screw the HDD in place, then reboot the computer. Format the HDD under disk management (to do this check the link below)

for the RAM, i personally recommend getting the exact same RAM that you have right now, that is because of stability and compatibility. some issues may occur when you use generic plus branded.
