I will try that over the weekend. Is it possible to diagnose a PSU just by looking at the voltage management in the BIOS, though?

I took some shots of mine, please tell me if anything looks wonky:

I could maybe borrow some for testing. But is it really possible that it's a RAM problem, though? I did a MemCheck86+ for 8 hours with no results. I also tried the Windows install with 1 RAM stick at a time and it BSOD'ed both times.

It is a little outdated, so you will have to find tools to convert the floppy version into a USB version. Should be doable with some research (Google is your friend).
Thanks! I can try that. I have a USB floppy drive, so that might work (provided that I find an actual floppy disk I can use ^_^)

Try Flashing the BIOS before going any further.

Everything looks okay in the BIOS as far as the voltages go, but under load is where it counts.

Here's the thing, you are running Memtest without fail. This "should" indicate that your memory and/or memory slots are good. But, just to be positive, I suggest sticking another set of memory in there just to be safe.

Post back when you have done these things.

BTW, re-reading everything you have said I wanted to tell you that I, nor anyone else has mentioned yet that the "stop: 0x00000124" code you got generally refers to a cpu or motherboard issue.

Along those lines: Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try is good further reading.

Howard, were you able to figure anything out?

Hey James, thanks for checking back.

I haven't had time to work on it, but that is my plan for the weekend. Will post back with what I find out

Hi guys,

so I just flashed my BIOS, and the problem persists unfortunately.

I tried two different revisions, starting with the F11 (which is the newest one available at the Gigabyte website). When that failed to show any improvement, I tried an older one, the F4. Same thing, BSOD while installing Windows.

By the way, my original BIOS revision was F3. The flashing itself was easy, though it was my first time doing it. The Q-Flash tool embedded in my MoBo let me flash directly from a USB drive.

I also cleaned out my entire chassis. Unplugged and re-plugged everything in the Mobo, even removed my heatsink and CPU, applied new thermal paste, swapped SATA cables for new ones I had lying around, vacuum cleaned everything.

So at this point I am ready to send my Mobo back, since it's still under warranty (bought it in October).

Thanks all for the help, really appreciate it.

No problem. Replacing the motherboard is sometimes a good troubleshooting step to rule it out if nothing else. Let us know how the swap goes when you get the new one.
