    Hi there Axe, OK I have attached it to this post.
    Note: that my mobo has dual shot networking, so that means two ethernet connections plus wireless.

    Yes, both are killer network connections, both are present, but there is just too much in the network part of the msinfo32.

    Hmm, I did repair it. It is a real pain to uninstall it. Could the wifi connection make Windows think that I have a laptop? The mobo has 2 ethernet plus 1 wifi connection.

    Should I do a cmos reset to see whether that sorts out the OS thinking I have a mobile platform?

    The cmos has only the time and BIOS settings, but sometimes it odd enough works for other things to.
    Before you do so, ground yourself properly and make sure you don't touch anything inside the case as it could give any kind of damage.

    OK did that. For some unknown reason the bios went from F5 to beta F6g. It does however now show up as Desktop on msinfo32. The mobo has Dualbios. Why does it flip like that? Also should I flash it back to F5? Rebooting or making changes in Bios, seems to result in the bios swapping over.

    What do you mean with 'flip like that'?

    If a reboot following a bios change fails.
    OK so reflashed to the stable F5. Now showing that I have a Mobile platform... What the hell is going on?

    That would be a bug in the BIOS then.

    Back to the main thing, have you had bluescreens?

    Not since the one this morning. But they do tend to be random. In that I can go a few days without any, and then get three or four in quick succession. Do the minidumps reveal anything else apart from the nvidia driver and network drivers?

    ps., how do I sort out the Bios bug? Stick with the beta?

    Something went wrong with my post.

    I was trying to say:
    The minidumps don't reveal much at all, but the nvidia driver is all I saw.
    You would need a full memory dump for more information, but I can do just a little few things with a minidump, I wouldn't get much more from a memory dump.

    This BIOS bug is a minor one, I wouldn't worry about it.
