    I have been working on a computer for other people and have come across a few new problems that i have not seen before. most of it is related to BIOSTAR TA890GXB HD AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX AMD Motherboard which has 2 LED lights that are not lighting which talks about abnormal CPU/chipset error. but the thing is this does not always happen. I can boot the computer sometimes and it will boot just fine but when i restart those two lights which are LED_D1 and LED_D2 do not come on. Also system will get stuck on windows 7 load screen as well. Then the next time that i boot computer successfully it has to restore to before all drivers were installed. I need help with this any ideas?

    Did you try to flash with new version BIOS? Maybe it can solve a problem.

    First off I wold leave the BIO Flash idea alone for now. This is something that can turn your motherboard into a collection of useless parts if it goes wrong. Flashing the BIOS is not a recommended troubleshooting proceedure.

    second please include Make and model System if Big Box, or same info for the following if custom or home built, Mother Board (including Revision number), Processor (Exact Model Number), Ram, Video Card, Hdd(s), Optical Drive(s), Power Supply Manufacturer Model, Wattage and Amperage on the +12V Rails, OS, and any other peripherals installed on the motherboard.
