Windows 7: Computer refuses to shut down and then BSOD's on me if I let it run.

Then just continue and install the new drivers. Just the display driver and PhysX. Be sure the 'clean install' box is checked.

Okay; I'm afraid I did the clean reinstall of my Nvidia drivers, but the issue is still back with a vengeance (e.g. reproduction rate of 10/10). Do you think I should take the next step of trying to set my BIOS to optimized defaults/XMP and adjust the RAM timings?

It won't hurt, but I don't really think that's your problem, but it could be. Just be sure your sata controller is set to whatever it is set to right now and set your boot order.

Alrighty, my SATA controller is set to ACHI and I was able to implement the XMP RAM protocol and it seemed to be lining up with the specs you gave me (although I couldn't quite figure out what "2T at 1.5 volts" meant, there was some field where the data was 1.5 volts). When you say set the boot order, I'm thinking you mean that it should be set to whatever my C drive is (because when I looked, I think it's set to check my extra storage non solid state drive). Is that right?

Yes, set it to the drive you want to boot from. 2T is a ram timing. 2T is much more stable than 1T.

Essenbe; alright, well, I went into the boot menu and when I tried to set the boot order there were only two options; my CD drive and one of my hard disks, so I selected the hard drive. I wasn't able to find a field or setting called RAM timing or anything labeled 1T or 2T. I'll try giving it another look here in a second. The issue persists, but I appreciate your help!

I am not familiar with Gigabyte boards, but usually you can look for Hard drive BBS in boot options and change the boot drive there. If you enabled XMP, it should have set the Ram timings correctly.

Alrighty! I changed the boot settings under the hard drive BBS section just like you mentioned to my C drive, but I'm afraid the issue persists. I was able to confirm that XMP is set, but I still didn't see any field with 1T or 2T (they were just all numeric) nor any setting called "RAM timing". For reference, this is what the advanced memory screen looks like for Gigabyte's boot menu (http://www.pcstats.com/articleimages...5_DSCF8791.jpg). Most of the settings (such as DRAM Timing Selectable) just have options like "Auto", "Quick", or "Turbo".

If you enabled XMP, it will be fine. It will read the timings, frequency and voltage from the ram sticks themselves. Do you have another hard drive you can use and the installation DVD?
