    Hi,

    have you download the driver from the support site of nvidia, check whether it is working or not ?

    First of all, list your exact system specs; ie mb [which you have already done] brand and speed of ram, exact pw supply specs, any add-in cards, etc, etc.

    Next have you tested the ram with something like memtest?

    Foxconn builds high-end boards and they also build junk. In fact foxconn does the actual mfg of intel boards so if you buy an intel board, it is most likely made by foxconn.

    I would open the case and give the board a very close inspection with a bright light. Look for any leaking/discolored/bulging capacitors on the board. They look like this;
