Thanks Jonathan, but I've tried the crossing fingers thing several times lately but I still BSOD'd. Maybe it will work this time.

I just had 2 more bsods, but these were my fault. I was trying to update my bios when the crash occurred.

Honestly, I do suspect a motherboard problem now. I guess it's up to you; replace the PSU and motherboard, whichever is cheapest/easiest. If neither are under warranty, or both are, replace the motherboard first. If only one is under warranty, try to get that replaced first.

Jonathan, I tend to agree with you. The MB is under warranty, but from what I have heard, MSI will be difficult to deal with and a minimum 6 week turn around time. I'll Replace the PSU in any case. The PSU is not worth RMA. I hope you or someone will help me out on this.
I am thinking about buying a new MB and PSU. What brand MB is easiest to update bios? It is a nightmare with MSI. After you update it you have to go inside the case, move the jumpers to clear CMOS, then hope it works. Not good for a normal user. Asrock claims to make it easy from within bios I dont know.

I was thinking about this PSU CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-650HX 650W Newegg.com - CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-650HX 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Will this work in a rosewill Challanger case?

Yes, that ATX PSU will work great in a ATX case. And it appears to be a very good PSU as well!

I have an Asrock motherboard; all I have to do to update the BIOS is run the file I download; it requires one reboot. I know Asus boards are the same way, but I don't know about anything else.

I wouldn't base my decision of what motherboard to get on how easy it is to update the BIOS, though. Flashing the BIOS is something most people never do; it's one of the riskier and least helpful procedures most of the time. If you ever encountered a situation where you needed to update the BIOS, you wouldn't mind the hassle.

If I RMA my MB or buy a new one will that mean I have to purchase a new OS? Mine is an OEM from the guy who put my system together. I understand that they go by the s# of the MB>

I believe OEM keys are tied to the motherboard, unfortunately. You probably won't have a problem, though I can't guarantee anything. If you replace the motherboard with an identical one, you will maximize your chances of success there.

Well, after over a week I had another BSOD last night. This time it has made the computer not want to start. It will still post as normal but then sit tere with a black screen for several minutes. Eventually it usually starts. That is rather uncommon for an SSD with a 38 second boot time. I went into bios and set everything to default, have run scannow and checkdisk with no reports of problems. I ran startup repair 3 times and the diagnostic tool in the installation disk. I am trying to get up the money and the nerve to replace the MB and PSU. Here are the usual folders.

BTW, I don't know if it means anything but in the past when I ran diskpart the SSD was always listed as disk 2, now it is disk 3.
