I understand you dilemma. But as long as we are unable to look at any bugcheck codes, we are looking into a black box. Review again the settings you have made to prevent an automatic restart - maybe you overlooked something.

Could it be a setting in the BIOS not letting the blue screen splash?

Let's go ahead and do our own tests.

First test your RAM. Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder.. Boot from the CD, and run at least 5 passes.

Then test your hard drive: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.
