I am very frustrated because a wealth of people are really trying to help me but nothing seems to be working. I am at my wits end. If I RMA the MB I can let Asus check it out. It is covered under warranty. If they give it a clean bill of health then I will RMA the memory which is also under warranty. I really feel I need to try some thing more definitive. If they both check out fine then I will do a clean install of Windows reformatting the hard drive and putting all the Win 7 drivers (Updated where available) back on then the Nvidia Win 7 graphics driver from the Nvidia web site.

I really wish I could have opened up that .dmp file and archived it so I could let you see it but I can't get it open.

I really don't know what else to say except thank You.
There are other things you can do if you want to stick with it.

One is event viewer (tyep eventvwr in search) go to windows log>applications, or system tabs.

Look for critical errors (they have red in the left hand column) that relate to the problem.

When you find them note the Event ID and source code and tell us what they are.

The othher is a little bit more agressive. called driver verifier. To use it you should have a win 7 dvd, and a backup (just in case), plus a restore point.

You should run it for at least 12 hours. It will crash your machine and in doing so tell you (hopefully) what is dong it. here are the instructions. Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers

I really like that idea of checking the drivers but if I get a BSOD I will not be able to archive or open the .dmp file from the minidump file.
