AMD A8 7600 with Asus A88X-Pro - Works with generic drivers.  Freeze with AMD drivers.

Question asked by eelhc on Sep 25, 2015

Just built a home rig with an A8 5800 on a Asus A88X-Pro.  Stock default bios (no overclocking or tuning).  Loaded Windows 7 Home.  Everything is working with the generic windows drivers.  But when I load the Catalyst chipset and display adapter drivers, I get a buzzing sound, screen dithering and a freeze requiring a power button reset.  I can do file operations, change system settings, etc...  The memory DIMMs have been tested good.  So it has to be the CPU or the Motherboard...  Anyone seen this before?  Did I get a Lemon(s)?
