    Recently purchased a new computer. I was having issues with installing Windows 7 and learned that HyperTransport is sometimes the cause of the issue and by turning it from "Auto" in the BIOS settings to "X1" can resolve the issue, and for me it did.

    After installing Windows 7 and waiting to see if there were any other errors I went back to turn HyperTransport back to "Auto" I'm above computer savvy, but not far when it comes to hardware, I'm more of a software kind of guy. After doing so I was receiving consistent BSOD's. And after turning HyberTransport back to "X1" they went away narrowing it down to this being my issue.

    I didn't know if updating my BIOS would help the issue so I decided to ask around first.

    Computer Specs:

    AMD Phenom II X6 1075T with HyperTransport
    Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3
    8Gig of Corsair Dominator
    ATI Radeon HD 5770 1Gig

    I have no idea about the power that any of these pieces should be receiving, nor if that would even be the cause of the problem. Also, windows freezes along with the BSODs saying that a video driver went out but was recovered, I just installed the latest video drivers. At the time of posting this the computer has been running for 2hours without HyperTransport set to "Auto"

    Would updating the BIOS fix the problem?

    Thank you!
