Hi,

I have the rather familiar problem with my PC build whereby I get lockups or BSOD (Machine_check_exception) in Windows or in games. After months of fiddling around and checking components etc. I have learned I can solve this problem by resetting the CMOS by taking the battery out and then putting it back in. However, after a few days the problems return and I have to repeat.

Obviously whenever I reset the CMOS I have to go into setup and reconfigure everything again whcih is a pain, but sometimes I just leave it as the defaults (don't even set the time and date correctly) and the same thing happens, again after a couple of days usage, so I don't think it's from any setting I use. I don't overclock or anything, have all the latest drivers etc etc remember I have been trying to diagnose this for months so I have done all the usual checks and updates.

So before I send back the mobo, is there anything anyone can suggest I check? Seen this problem before anywhere?

Thanks,

Robin.
