only 1 drive had windows...but all it does is starts loading windows (boot screen) for 2seconds then blue screens VERY quickly and resets.

I am assuming you have tried new ide cable...

I'd suspect board failure, less likely cpu. You DID turn off any overclocking, right? I've found often that loading overclocked leads to trouble, and always run at default speeds for loading OS.

Does the board act properly if booting sans ram or cpu, vga card? In other words, correct bios beeps? If no beeps, that will show the mobo is hurt.

Wouldnt hurt to also run memtest, although longshot, bad ram will introduce funny symptoms.

is it possible to get it into safe mode from bootup? or does safe mode not load either?
