Windows 7: Comp. Immediately Crashes. Safe mode = Ok.

Hello again,

Sorry for the long delay; I started a new job and put the forum threads on the back burner.

Try burning an Ubuntu Live CD: Download | Ubuntu

Boot from that, selecting "Try Ubuntu with no changes...", and see if you get any trouble. If so, you may start looking at the motherboard. It seems like this is a certain hardware error, but you're ruling out my best guesses. All we can do at this point is swap and observe.

Alright, but before I do that, I think I may have solved it.
It was one of the problems/solutions you suggested awhile back; the ram.
I don't believe we looked at the ram settings in the bios, but I personally tried to do some research on it.
The very first thing I saw was that the ram wasn't set by default to the product specs on newegg's site. I set them to the egg's specifications but I still crashed.
I later found that on each module itself had the timings and voltages info with the serial # on the little sticker. These settings were different than the settings given on the webpage. Inconvenient and odd...I set them to those specs but I'd still crash. I googled the serial number and found more settings for my sets that were still different, I changed the settings again and haven't crashed yet.
I've found a lot of other threads with problems relating to different ram sets and my mobo. I suppose it's picky with timings.

However I'm still waiting for my Rma'd sapphire card to get back.

All the power to you for checking back on the threads since you've been gone.
Good luck on the new job

Oh man. Remember me?
Well, I've gotten my video card back. I've set everything up and over the four days I've had it I've had two blue screens.
One was while I was playing Oblivion, and the other while I was just on the web.

So I'm not sure where to go from here. I've called asus support at currently I'm waiting a call back from them within 24 hours.

Should I change any bios settings regarding the ram? Because the settings I have right now are for the normal 2x2 (4GB) set, but I do have two of those sets in...8GB...

jcgriff attached...

Try taking out one of the sets of RAM, and use only the 4GB for a while. See if that helps any.

Also, you might try sticking the other video card back in.

Well during the time I had my other card in (about 2.5 weeks (and 8GB ram in)) there were no Bsods....except one, but then I changed the ram bios settings to the correct specs and after that it was smooth sailing.

Try putting the old card back in, and leave the RAM and BIOS settings as they are. Perhaps we can narrow things down a bit.

By old card do you mean the replacement or the original? Sorry=/

Alright, I've done that.
Do we wait now or...?

Just use that for a few days or so; the longer, the better. If you get a BSOD during that time, post back immediately. Report back after a week has gone by with no BSODs, and perhaps we can draw a couple of conclusions.
