    ok, jumped in to my first build with both feet. but it appears i landed on my butt. lol... asus m5a88-v evo mobo...amd phenon II x 4 955 3.2g ame rt cpu. seems mobo specs do not support this processor. looked it up in asus site. that said, i havent found anyone that has a supported processor, acording to the support guide at asus. my problem is random crashes black screen, white screen yellow screen with viritcal brown lines, white screen with black vertical lines, and once a light blue screen. queston; could the onboard grafics card be dieing or is it because of the missmatched componants.:confused:

    If it says the processor is not supported, it won't work properly. There is a possibility that a BIOS update supports more processors, but read the release notes. Don't do anything that dangerous unless you are sure it adds the support you want.

    I do not know what you are looking at however when I check the specs, the 955 IS a supported cpu. Here is the cpu support page for your board.

    Next if you want advise, post your exact system specs; ie exact mb AND what bios is currently used, exact cpu since there are more than one 955, the exact ram you have installed, the exact pw supply you have installed, etc, etc. Post links to your parts if possible.

    Next you need to post your temps and voltages; specifically the cpu temp, mb or system temp, 12V, 5V, and 3.3V values. This info is available in the bios OR you can download and install asus probe from the asus site.
