    Question

  • Hello,

    ASUS P5E3 Workstation motherboard with Intel X38 chipset

    Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3.00 GHz

    8GB DDR3 RAM @ 1333MHZ (every stick is same model)

    NVidia GTX 570

    Samsung  1TB SATA Hard drive

    Any ideas?

  • the Motherbaord is a special Workstation version. Maybe Windows 8 has some issues with such workstation motherboards.
