Sorry if this is hard to follow, I have a bad headache right now.
Tuesday night my computer got a BSOD STOP ERROR 0x000000F4 while idling at the desktop. I restarted my machine and Windows would blue screen on start-up. I tried multiple restore points along with running the built in repair tool and I still had issues. I reinstalled Windows and the problem happened again. I decided to try to install to a different disk drive but now when I try to boot to my Windows 7 USB install drive it gets the BSOD right after showing the Windows flag at start-up.
Things I've tried so far:
-Reinstalling Windows (BSOD on startup after installing)
-Resetting BIOS (Did not fix problem)
-Reinstalling Window again (BSOD when starting the Windows installer)
-Different power supply (Did not fix problem)
-Different memory (4 4GB sticks of CORSAIR vengeance. two sticks are brand new)
I'm pretty sure it's either the Motherboard or CPU and I'm leaning towards the motherboard because from my experience CPU's almost never go bad.
I recently RMA'd my board with ASUS and I don't really want to deal with sending it back again (ASUS support was horrible) so if it is the board I think that I'll just buy a cheap 1155 board and upgrade to an 1150 board when Haswell is released.
All input is welcome
