Hi Boysetsfire757. The only drivers that you should need for this motherboard are for the onboard sound and graphics. Windows generally looks after the Intel motherboard chipset itself. I think it's unlikely to be the motherboard that is causing your problem, and if hardware is the cause then I think your other suspicion - the memory - is much more likely. If you can give more information regarding the error messages and the circumstances of the crashes then we might be able to give more specific advice.
