    Windows 8/Windows 8.1

    Yeah now i know where the problem is and I believe it is chipset. Funny thing is I never ran into any problems using Windows 8 on this board. All my problems happened when moving my hardware to the Sabertooth 990fx. The only reason why I ran back to this board well cause it was stable and actually running without any problems. I have done memory tests and tested my video cards and none show any issues. Hard Drives tested as well and no issues I'm actually thinking about going back to the Sabertooth 990fx to see if the errors actually on this board (M4N98TD EVO).

    Anyways I received another crash I wasn't around to see what and how this crash happened but I looked in the event logs to see what exactly happened around that time.

    Event log error 1:

    A fatal hardware error has occurred.

    Component: AMD Northbridge
    Error Source: Machine Check Exception
    Error Type: HyperTransport Watchdog Timeout Error
    Processor APIC ID: 0

    Event log error 2: (this happened about 7 times)

    LiveComm (1084) C:\Users\Eric\AppData\Local\Packages\microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\Li veComm\cff1cc1d7e3d57fe\120712-0049\: A request to read from the file "C:\Users\Eric\AppData\Local\Packages\microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\L iveComm\cff1cc1d7e3d57fe\120712-0049\DBStore\livecomm.edb" at offset 7421952 (0x0000000000714000) for 8192 (0x00002000) bytes succeeded, but took an abnormally long time (44 seconds) to be serviced by the OS. In addition, 11 other I/O requests to this file have also taken an abnormally long time to be serviced since the last message regarding this problem was posted 98 seconds ago. This problem is likely due to faulty hardware. Please contact your hardware vendor for further assistance diagnosing the problem.

    Event log error 3: (this happens off and on)

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!

    The Machine Check Exception error is an error that the CPU finds. It doesn't mean that the CPU is bad, but most times it means that there's either a low-level driver or a hardware problem (which includes compatibility).

    The LiveComm error points at hardware (could be compatibility) also.
    The registry error may or may not be significant here. I don't think that we'll gain anything by hunting down the faulting program(s) - and even that could be due to problems with compatibility.

    Unfortunately, diagnosing compatibility issues is (IME) a matter of frustration level. By this I mean the random-seeming errors keep increasing your frustration level as does your repeated attempts to fix each and every one of the problems. Finally, after a lot of hard work and sweat you end up replacing the suspect parts out of desperation - and then, miraculously, your problems go away (not always - but that's been my experience)! It's probably a function of both your tolerance for frustration, and your troubleshooting of the assorted problems.

    Good luck!
