Mobo upgrade

Recommended Posts

Hello forum, I just took apart my powerspec pc in hopes of replacing its cheap a320 board with a b450, and I managed to do that successfully. However, windows is extremely unstable now, and I have some blue screens for you guys to analyze. I am resetting windows as I type this, but it has taken an hour so far for windows to “get things ready” any ideas? Thanks!


p.s: there are a lot more blue screens but I can only upload 20 MB

Set board to defaults. Consider running your memory very conservatively. 
Look into flashing the BIOS to the latest version. 
Ensure that there aren't any driver conflicts.

I tried to reset windows but it was “getting things ready” from 9 PM to 6 AM so I had to shut it down. I’m looking into making a windows usb drive that I can reinstall a fresh copy of windows on, because I can’t even check my drivers without blue screening.

Update: windows windows did not reset over night, but I got it to reset over the day instead and 1 blue screen since then (dialing in ram). Seems to be stable, however I can’t get my ram  up to 2933mhz like my a320 board did, which is surprising to say the least. I have g.skill ripjaws v 3200mhz ram (16-18-18-38) timings. Does anyone have input?
