Hmm okay.
Did you enable verifier at all?

Yeah I ran it for 36 hours but never got a blue screen during that time.

Well I hope you already know the purpose of Driver verifier? If there are no BSODs when verifier is enabled, the problem lies within hardware.

I've seen your older threads and assume your computer is still under its warranty.

Anyway, do you prefer doing a clean install on your computer?

Yeah, I figured that when verifier didn't lead anywhere that the problem was in hardware. When I replaced the motherboard I ended up doing a clean install and the problem remained, so unless I need another motherboard I'm not too confident a clean install will solve anything.

One thing I've been thinking of doing is replacing the graphics card, because when I'm playing games, they will occasionally freeze and then I will get a message along the lines of "AMD driver has stopped responding and recovered" and sometimes the computer will say something like "your computer is running slower than it should, disable windows aero color scheme?" and in the reviews of this graphics card none of these issues were ever mentioned. Seeing as how I have the latest graphics card drivers, I'm thinking maybe my card is a bit faulty.

However, the BSODs that you've looked over and the same the other guys saw in the previous thread saw didn't lead anyone to point at the graphics card as the issue. I'm just not sure how to narrow down hardware problems. I would like to think I'm not so unlucky that that I got two motherboard duds

It's okay, don't be sad as long as you're computer is under it's warranty.

Go through this thread, see how the OP found out where his/her problem was.

Btw, does your mobo have an on-board VGA slot? If yes, how does your computer act when connected there?

You may take the following video card stress test

I did the graphics stress test and after about maybe 7 minutes the computer froze and I got the message "AMD driver has stopped responding and has recovered" and the test wouldn't resume. The temperatures seemed to be leveling out at 74C.

However, I suppose if the motherboard is faulty, it could be affecting the graphics card. I looked at that thread and I see I'm not the only unlucky one.

The motherboard does have a vga slot, and if I recall, using the vga slot means the graphics card needs to be disabled and the intel graphics will be used. I've got to go to bed now so I can address that tomorrow. Thanks for your help so far. It looks like the problems may remain with the motherboard...again, the most pain in the *** part of the computer to replace.

Okay no problem, get some sleep now.

And yes when you're up next we'll try your VGA slot.
The options for that can be changed from your BIOS.

See you soon

Using the vga slot without the graphics card didn't stop the blue screen. This time the bsod occured when I was playing an online game, and I was getting unusually large and long lag spikes, although that might be unrelated.

Just blaming the direct x files this time.
Now I'm sure this is a defective motherboard issue.

Code:
Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.
BugCheck 1000007E, {ffffffffc0000005, fffff880031de270, fffff88005be0528, fffff88005bdfd80}
Probably caused by : dxgmms1.sys ( dxgmms1!VIDMM_GLOBAL::EndPreparation+48 )
I'd suggest you to RMA, as these tests and tweaks that we're doing might void the warranty.

Let us know your decision.
