    Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.00GHZ
    MSI P7N SLI Platinum
    2 XFX 8800GT 512MB SLI
    Kingstn DDR2 800 3GB
    2 Seagate 250GB HDD

    I installed Windows everything was good, I installed the graphic card drivers everything good, but when I installed the motheboard drivers and restarted the machine it automatically told that it needed to check for consistancy and it gave a lot of errors and then after it started giving a blue screen and then restarted. and everytime the error comes up and the computer restart it then checks for consistancy once again.

    Please help what do you think it is?

    Thank for all your help

    What version of Windows did you install? Windows XP or Vista?

    The correct and best order to setup a new system is to install any and all Service Packs after the initial install of Windows. That means Service Pack 3 for Windows XP or Service Pack 1 for Vista. Then install the chipset drivers, and then do the rest of the drivers such as video, sound and network. The chipset drivers should be installed before any other drivers as everything else relies on them for proper functionality. You can download the Service Packs and drivers to a CD\DVD or USB drive to transfer to the computer.

    Also make sure you are running at least BIOS version 1.1 for proper support of the E8400 CPU, 1.2 is the latest. http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=bios&maincat_no=1&prod_no=1373 You can update via floppy/CD/USB key or in Windows using the MSI LiveUpdate feature at that page.

    You may also want to use the latest drivers from www.nvidia.com rather then from the CD for both the NForce 750i SLI chipset and the Geforce 8800GT's: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

    Ok, since this is a new build you may want to test the RAM: http://www.memtest.org/
    Also find out exactly what RAM you have. A lot of the higher end DDR2 RAM requires the user to manually increase the RAM Voltage to the BIOS to what is called for by the RAM.

    What BIOS version is on the board?

    I would do a reload and do the Service Packs and drivers in the order I mentioned above. Update the BIOS too.
