My new computer is not behaving correctly.
Well it has not been more than a week that I got my new motherboard and since the second I assembled it, it has not been working correctly. After 3 days and many burnt DVD's, I realized the second stick of RAM was dead. After removing it, W7 installation went as planned. I soon installed Mozilla Firefox and that too did not go as smoothly as I had planned and got many false downloads. After installing my wireless adapter, my internet starts to drop out at least 10-20 times a day requiring a restart to reconnect. Next and last, my favorite game quits during the middle when anything gets too intense. The game is not I high resorce game and I have played much larger maps with more players with more ships on much weaker machines and I have never had any problem like this. The game then has to be restarted to run again and it continues to do frequent shutdowns.
For lack of a better explanation, I think I'd better try reinstalling Windows 7 or RMA'ing my motherboard. But before I do anything, do I have any other options or things that could be causing my problems?
