Yup, I removed AVG and have finally found the most up to date drivers ( or at least I think/hope I have! ) I though the ones on the MSI website were the most up to date, hence my confusion. I'm getting on the new drivers now.
Ok, so far I've updated:
AMD display drivers
Intel graphics drivers
Intel chipset drivers
Intel USB drivers
I used the MSI website as guide and these were all on there. Are there any drivers I've missed? I searched windows 7 on the Intel drivers page and I've got all the latest ones from there.
I can't really think of anything else, but I've probably overlooked something. Thanks
Ok good. They were the ones I was most concerned about. What about checking for dust inside the machine? Dust can be a major cause of heating issues and it's worth checking your system. I clean mine out every 3-6 months as it does make a difference.
Please open the start menu, find command prompt, right click on it and run as admin. Type:
Press enter and await results. If you have any corruption within windows this will try and repair it.
Ok, the scan just finished. It said it did not find any integrity violations. Some guy suggested I should do this about 2 weeks ago before I posted on this forum and it came back with a couple of errors and fixed them.
I've also given my machine a quick dusting. I didn't do a great job, I don't really want to go poking around the components too much, but it's a lot cleaner than it was!
