    Hi,

    your bios needs updating:
    BiosVersion = V1.6
    BiosReleaseDate = 01/21/2009
    There has been at least 10 updates released some including updates for memory modules (please double check I have the correct motherboard:
    http://uk.msi.com/product/mb/DKA790GX.html#/?div=BIOS

    Please update your GPU driver:

    Please update your network driver (you can also grab your Hi Def sound drivers from here too):

    kemical,

    Thanks for the analysis, I will do this and post back the results here.

    Also, I have never flashed BIOS before, is that pretty easy?

    If you got to the motherboards web page I'm almost sure they'll have a guide and/or software to help you.

    In fact it does say to use the little flash utility included in the download:

    I also found the guide page too:

    Sorry for taking sooo long to get back and update.

    I was able to update the BIOS and everything seemed to work fine for a while. Eventually my ram started to die so I have built a new rig.

    Thanks for all of your help in debugging and suggest the fixes for the issues I was having.
