m4a785td-m evo HELP

By Dworrall ·
Hi, i bought a m4a785td-m evo motherboard with an AMD Phenom x4 3.4ghz processor. $gb corsair dominator ram. Basically, Windows XP works perfectly but when i try to install windows 7, i get errors about files could not be found. If i manage to install it then i get random errors about memory management and eventually windows fails completely.

the motherboards windows 7 compatible. Any ideas anyone?
