I recently put together an APU system, and after an express install of the catalyst driver package, the system will BSOD after the windows log in screen. Without using a manual restore point, windows will not even boot in safe mode. This is all on a fresh, fully updated install of windows 7 home 64bit, with the 14.4 driver suite. nothing is installed on the system except for windows frame work and network drivers. The system specs are......
a10 5800k apu @ 3.8ghz w/ haltstate/amd coolnquiet enabled
gigabyte ga-f2a88xm-d3h mobo
2x4gb gskill 1600 ripjaws X series w/xmp profile 1 enabled
ocz 700w psu(overkill but it was layin around)
1 7200rpm sata
I have tried a few times, once with the 13.2 drivers that came with the mobo cd, and 2 others with the 14.4 and different bios settings all with the same result. Is there one specific thing I shouldnt be installing in the driver package? Is the xmp profiles affecting it? Does the c1/c3, amd coolnquiet work on these APU's? Id just like to here from the community, I know there is still things I can try like disabling the power saving functions(rather not), disabling xmp but each time I change a setting and reinstall the drivers, and get the BSOD loop, I have to do a file check and a system restore, and start over which takes time with a crappy 7200rpm drive. I will check back here frequently so please help me out, and ask any question that will help you help me. HELP
