  1. Hello, First of all thanks to anyone who can help.

    Here is my problem: I just built my brother his computer for Xmas and everything is brand new and the computer is "working". Yet every time I start a game or try to get the system rating the comp either freezes, restarts, or blue screens. I've updated the video card half a dozen times and It says that it is updated yet problems still occur.

    Here are the specs

    OS- Windows 7 64bit
    Video card- AMD Radeon HD 6900
    Processor- AMD 6 core 6100
    Motherboard- 990FX Sabertooth
    Ram- 8gs
    Power- antec 900w
    HD- 2 terabyte

    Although that processor is supported by the motherboard, it's possible that the BIOS is an older version, pre-FX.
