Recently, I gutted this PC and installed a new motherboard (Asus M2N), processor, video card and power supply.
Kept the old harddrive, with the old stuff's drivers on it etc etc and installed the drivers for the new stuff on afterwards.
I have had no conflicts with any of it so far, except for one niggling problem.
The game Company of Heroes goes to blue screen of death every time you try to load a level.
The reason is a viahd file, ending in .sys. VIA HD is the new onboard audio that came with the motherboard.
The old audio drivers still exist somewhere, and I'm worried that might be the problem. Although they don't show up on add/remove programs.
I used Registry Mechanic to clear the old problems out... all 980 of them. The BSOD is still persisting.
I've updated the VIA audio drivers, after trying a reinstall from the motherboard drivers disk first. Still having the problem.
I can get the exact filename and error if needed, I'm just hoping It can be solved without having to force another BSOD. It can't be doing the PC
any good having like 5 of them a day.
