damn I got 2 more blue screens 1 said something about "writing to a read only something" it is making me mad that I cant find the problem even after Replacing the Ram, CPU and Motherboard with a RMA all are less then 3 months old, the Motherboard was giving me problems before and its giving me the same problem now when I restart the PC at the Shutting Down Windows Screen, the Screen goes black and just sits there and does nothing the fan and everything else on my case are still running so I don't know what the problem would be

Only things left that you have not replaced are hard drive and PSU. See if you can borrow a PSU since it looks to be the most likely...

The three hardest components to debug are the PSU, CPU, and the motherboard. That is because all three cause a wide variety of crashes and problems when they fail. There are methods for testing each, but they usually require electrical experience and the tools appropriate to an electrical occupation, i.e. a multimeter.

The problem is that none of those components will resolve the crashes if they are due to the PSU... Try to find a PSU. Ask friends if they have one you could borrow. Maybe someone has one sitting around or in a system and is willing to let you borrow it. Just try to get one around the same wattage as yours.

ok well know of my friends have a Spare cpu close enough to my current 550 watt and i need at least 2 sata power plugin on the PSU and needs to power my GFX card as well
do you think i should just buy a cheap 500 or 600 watt psu??

No, a cheap PSU is going to cause problems due to low efficiency. You need a good PSU that has at least an 80% efficiency.

if a PSU has 80 PLUS® certified? is that what you mean by 80% Efficiency?
