However, we'll get this sorted out, it could be a few things that are mocking u.
U could try installing a different version of uguru. I believe the one on the mobo cd isn't vista friendly (not even sure vista was out at the time).
Keep this link handy. It has some good reading in it regarding the mobo. I believe the uguru version they settled on there is 3.109. There are newer versions, but just like drivers for other things, the newer ones are aimed at newer mobos.
Another thing to check b4 we go any further, so none of us look like chumps, u have got the cpu fan plugged in the cpu socket and not the sys socket on the mobo ?
Rastalovich, thanks for the confidence there matey
1. yes I have the CPU fan plugged into the CPU Fan1 pins on the mobo.
2. yes I have the latest version of the software on the system, the one you have mentioned.
I was reading on the hexus forums where they have a dedicated Abit support forum and someone suggested updating the system to the version 18 bios for the E0 stepping on the IP35 Pro... http://forums.hexus.net/abit-care-he...ml#post1721452
My proccy is the Q6600 G0 stepping
Does this make any sense? It fixed various issues for a couple of guys, albeit they have different processors but if its for the IP35 Pro it must be OK? Its not even listed on the Abit site... but the naming convention is the same as the other IP35 Pro bios updates... you can see it here:
Is this worth giving a go? I can see its listed for the IP 35 Pro, but its under the E0 stepping and I'm concerned it won't work on my processor (but again the first thread I posted looks like the processors mentioned were similar).
Is this worth a go?? I realised that the only other common thing between my problems from Vista to Windows 7 is that this board has been at bios update 17 for a long time. Maybe its a BIOS incompatibility? Failing the above BIOS if you think its a bad idea, I could always back down to version 16?
PS Cheers Matt, I'll make sure its all just tweaked in the BIOS. I keep hearing mixed things about the uGuru software... I'll leave it be for the time being, especially if part of it is freezing my system lolz
It looks as though these are new bios's to support the use of the E0 stepping, so should be OK on the G0 stepping. Reading the thread the problems encountered seem to be by people with E0 processors. People have said they work fine on other stepping so I'm thinking of giving this a go. I have the current v17 bios on a bootable flash drive should I need to step back.
Any suggestions? Cheers guys!
