I had just reinstalled Windows 7 a couple months back. I had bought a LGA775 Gigabyte G41MT-S2PT with a Core2Duo E7500 to use temporarily after my LGA1366 Sabertooth X58 board failed. Luckily I was able to get a replacement under warranty despite physical damage that occurred after the board failed.
However I'm dealing with some issue trying to get set up with this board. When I received it and got everything together I found one of the ram slots isn't working, it's the one closest to the cpu for tri-channel, any memory in that slot isn't detected and causes the system to power cycle at least two times on boot or reboot/restart prior to posting. The other two slots are fine and the system posts without power cycling as long as there is no ram in that one slot. I tried reseating the ram as well as the cpu and heatsink to no avail so I may have to rma again.
Secondly once I got everything back together I couldn't boot into Windows. Windows will blue screen on the loading windows boot logo right before the welcome/login screen would load. I think this has to do with the Intel Chipset drivers that I couldn't figure out how to uninstall. All other drivers were uninstalled prior to switching boards except those.
Second issue is what I'm mostly concerned about as I can rma the board in the case of the first issue, any help is very much appreciated.
