That's rather a drastic next step. I'd hold up on buying a new motherboard for the time being.
Consider the facts, it seems to be with Windows 7 64-bit, up until you changed the drive, it appeared to also be associated with an SSD. It is happening with other makes of motherboard other than Gigabyte. I strongly suspect (but can't prove) W7 64-bit is the culprit. However I and several others are also having problems with w7 64-bit + SSD + Creative Labs x-Fi series sound cards (not BSOD, but loss of sound) you wouldn't happen to have one of those would you? It might just be a sound driver problem giving the BSODs as well as the sound loss. Or even some other driver we haven't identified yet.
In the mean time, please try a little experiment for me.
Start > shutdown > sleep
wait till the screen goes black, then hit any key or move the mouse.
For me that gives an instant BSOD followed by immediate total shutdown within a second or so - I can't read the BSOD screen it's so quick.

I'd like to try and do this, but I can't keep the computer booted up for more than a couple seconds. Most times, it doesn't get past the windows screen. I'm at a loss as to what to do.

I no longer have the SSD in. It does have 8 gb of ram, and is still win 64 bit.

Ouch! Nasty. This sounds far to serious for a pure W7 64-bit problem. Many moons ago, I had problems with an early version of XP Pro. It suffered the occasional BSOD. I finally tracked it down to a faulty memory stick that normal memtest didn't find. You could try swapping round your memory on the motherboard, if one piece is faulty, you may be able to get a different response when you boot up.

Maybe run memtest from a bootable CD, or borrow some suitable memory.

Replaced the motherboard, and everything is calm again. I haven't had a single crash and it's been about 3-4 days. Asus was very reluctant to give me an RMA, but they finally have. I guess now I have a 2 week period to get this temporary board out.

Thanks for all the help.
