DRAM_LED and BOOT_DEVICE_LED is ligthing up when i boot.

i dont know what to do with this. i removed the bad write header hdd.
the ram is showing 16gb on post. i got a new ssd like 2 months old aprox...

fresh install of windows 7 couple weeks since i installed it.

and sometimes when i hit start button and am going to click on my computer. and it auto clicks it for me and when i try to open programs like ccleaner when i eventually got there it opens like 5 of the same tasks and everything keeps blinking.

Double check all the settings in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Ease of Access Center.
You could try a different/new mouse too.

its not the mouse. i even use the "windows" key to open the start menu and hovers over something and it opens it. mouse is a steelseries diablo 3 mouse.

so everything is off or disabled in ease of access center.

but i can try next time its starts this to deconnect the mouse.

Try unistalling the mouse software, I have a steel series Sensei and it caused problems.

What colour are the DRAM and BOOT_DEVICE LEDs when they remain lit? And are you actually able to boot when they're lit?

nothing happened yet with the glitching. it happens sometimes when i lock the computer and re log in.
they are red... i think its not a good thing. i can boot. nothing wrong with that. i have pressed the MEMOK (GO button) but nothing changes.

Are you new to using an ASUS board? They have 4 red LEDs which light up in sequence during each boot. In this order, CPU, RAM, GPU, HDD, when the HDD LED goes off it has handed off to the OS and w7 starts. IF an LED stays on and doesn't boot it means there is some issue with that component.

The Z77 WS work station board uses blue LEDs.

Well my two cents worth have you tried a sfc yet? If not do so
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1538-sfc-scannow-command-system-file-checker.html
but do not do chkdsk on the SSD mate.

If you have not scanned for malware try these


http://www.superantispyware.com/

http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

download from bleeping computer

delete any crap they come up with

It might even be worth running the TDSS Killer from this list
Free Malware Removal Tools
scanning is purely to eliminate any possibles.
