I removed the software, shortly after it BSOD again. And again twice trying to start Empire Total war and again during the campaign. Could it possibly be the graphics cards? they are running in SLI, but... i have not had problems like these before... though i only ever used one graphic card and it was only for a short time i used the cards... Any more ideas? Temperature wise I don't see anything going over the 60'c mark. CPU stays cool at 30-40.

So I reformatted my HSS and SSD drives and installed windows updated windows and ect... and got another BSOD I did not have my graphic cards in. I think it may be my ram, though every time I try to test my ram they test stops or halts... does this mean the ram bad or is another piece of hardware bad and stopping it? Perhaps it the motherboard... and the memory... at this point I have no clue...

Try removing one of your RAM modules and seeing if you can then run the memory diagnostics without it halting.

As you add and remove hardware, follow these steps for ESD safety:
  1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
  2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
  3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
  4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working. If you do not have an anti-static workbench, desk, or pad, you can use your computer tower/case by finding a metal hold in it, such as a drive bay.
Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

OK we finally have some progress! I ran Prime95, the first test Small FTS was a success, but but when I ran the second test it found a error. I have never used Prime95 so I don't know what files to look at to see what the error was, but there was a hardware error. it says to consult the stress.txt but I dont see that file anywhere... I ran the test for Blend.

More Info: I also tried removing the Rams sticks and just using one at a time, and both stick were not able to get memory tested through memtest86+. When both sticks were out and I turned the PC on the computer (motherboard) picked up there were no memory stick. Does this mean the motherboard fine and it could possible just be the memory? also i tried down clocking the memory speed but that still didn't change anything...

It may be that your RAM is not compatible with the system or that your processor memory controller is bad. We should check compatibility first:
  • Download and install CPU-Z and Upload screenshots of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs. In the SPD tab, upload an image of each slot.

Ok...well the ram was not compatible, I returned it and got ram that was....but...now things are worse then ever... when I run windows memory diagnostic tool, the screen messes up and red lines go across the monitor, if i wait long enough the pc will restart itself, also the computer will cut off when ever i click on options for anything, not all the time but 80% of the time. When I try to install something form a CD it blue screens a lot... does this mean my motherboard bad? also, it seems my top USB 3.0 slotsd on the top of my motherboard no longer work... could be software or idk... any suggestions? Ok, also, my monitor plugged into my motherbaord I do not have my graphics card in or installed, While trying to use Firefox my screen messed up, and black and white lines went across the screen and it froze and restarted....motherboard? also.... when I run Hot Cpu tester it restarts after alittle ways through...i do not know if this is because of the test or just random intervals of restarting, the pc been idling for a couple minutes fine so perhaps the test.

Windows Memory Diagnostic or Memtest86+?

Either way, it sounds like you still have a hardware problem somewhere. Can you walk us through the voltage changes ASRock guided you through?


It may also help to supply us with your CPU-Z screenshots with the new RAM installed. Those will help us determine whether your timings and voltages are set up correctly.
