Hi there thank you all for the help and information, but nothing have worked so far and suspecting is vista but not sure. well i updated the bios if in case but did not fixed the problem, now i think there is a problem of chipset drivers as when i start any program that provides information about mobo it saids unknow chipset or chipset error, or chipset not found??? but everything works the games the web the sata2 hdd? the only thing is no matter what software i use to see fsb and chipset i get an error. i have updated the nforce chipset files servle times unistalling first the oldones and then installing newones, installation goes without error but somehow i cant seemed to find chipset info on windows? but check hardware devices manager on vista and no problems with drivers or faulty or disabled items???? i don't know what to do.

Having the latest chipset drivers or not shouldn't affect programs that provide a summary of the chipset/cpu/memory configuration etc.

My sister has this exact motherboard, however it is running windows XP. I'll try running CPU-Z on it tomorrow as I am unable to remote into it now (she must have it turned off).

Try http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php

Hi everyone for all your help, i have found the issue and is Vista yes Vista Ultimate was the problem, what i did updated the bios then reset enhanced defaults in bios then searched for the program i used to use in xp was ntune but still did not work so i look for different version and works i'm able to overclock the cpu nicely for games and i'm getting better score on benchmark test and more FPS frames per secon in game with fraps, im very happy, there were compatibility issues with vista but setting program to run with xp2 compatibility and works.

cheers,


Lew
