I know blu.... was great for 3 weeks.... I hope it's the PSU now....

Then I would get a PICO DE GALLO

Today was my last day to RMA my motherboard.....

So tomorrow I will test with the 350w supply.

That I will now for sure what to do next......

Do these-

1. Create bootable USB for W7- Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool

2. Insert W7 USB into front USB port of the A8

3. When the system boot up, please press “F8” or “F11” to enter “Boot Menu” and select USB device for your fist boot device , then the system will boot from the USB device which you selected.

Do these-

1. Download- AMD all in 1 driver ver:8.86RC2
2. Download- Realtek Lan driver ver:7.044
3. Download the latest AMD CCC- AMD Driver Autodetect


You should be ready for XBMC afterward.......

Have you finish installing W7?

If you did, you can install all the stuffs in post #102 first. Then, you can adjust the screen resolution afterward....
