I can do it. I updated it to F4
Just a thought, but seeing as you have a Gigabyte motherboard can you either A) List all of the Gigabyte utilities you have installed or B) upload new logs by running the DM Log Collector again and attaching the resulting .zip to your next post. Gigabyte utilities are notorious for causing 0x124 BSODs.
It's something worth ruling out.
This driver could also do with updating, another thing to rule out as it has been known to caus issues in the past.

I cant get it to recognize another usb drive to load a photo to play with, not can I get it to go online. but its up just idling
You could always try Ubuntu although Mint is based on it. Exactly the same procedure using Rufus.
Try 15.10, it's the latest. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop
Have you tried the OS drive yet? Might as well before bothering with Ubuntu. As we Limeys say sh*t or bust.

I think we've explored all the avenues Keith. Are you going for a new motherboard, points at that. Can you get it replaced ?
