Not seeing any bona fide reason for altering the network driver.

Alright I'll hold off on that. Last two time I booted my PC, I got to the desktop, however, Right after the starting windows screen everything lost signal. As usual I wait about 5-10mins then The welcome screen popped up and the mouse and keyboard lights came on.

You've been saying "lost signal" but what exactly do you mean? Do the USB devices randomly go undetected? You say it's happened before windows, which is weird.

Have you tried a BIOS update? Now don't get all happy and try that step, It is VERY risky. It is as easy as unplugging your computer while its updating and you've got a bricked motherboard. If you know the risks and are sure, then go for it. (UPS Power is useful here) If you are not comfortable then at least keep it for last resort.
However, it can fix MANY problems, even things that don't seem to have to do with it.
Here, you can choose better: HTG Explains: Do You Need to Update Your Computer?s BIOS?
And here is how to do it (That's all I can find, you can ask us for help:How to Update Your BIOS | PCWorld

Again, Don't do it if you don't know how. I can't stress how risky it can be if you make a false move or if you're unlucky!

Both monitors say lost/no signal. My lights on both my mouse and keyboard shut off. Fans keeps runnign though and the power light stays on. I update my BIOS about a year ago.

I am still very confused about that signal loss, although I'm still pretty confident it's something related to hardware as it happens outside windows(from what I understood at least).
Does any other usb device disconnect like mouse and keyboard? Also is your power supply working well, and what are the voltages on each line?

It's ok, checking voltages is already a more difficult step. Best way is to download HWMonitor and check the voltages tab. Perhaps a screen shot will do.

Whoa. Thats almost 7 volts on the 5v rail! To be honest, I think it is indeed the PSU that's faulty. However, it may be that the voltage is actually normal. If you have another PSU I would say definitely test it.
Also seems strange for the -12v rail to be only -6v.

Also you only have one fan? Where is it seated?
