ok i Just finished building my new rig about 6 months ago.

Yesterday playing BFBC2 right when the map ended i had lines go accross the screen and some like TV snow. Then blue screen of death.

So i thought the obvious one of my 4870's died...

I ended up reloaded windows to reformat. It works fine for like an hour 2 hours then BSOD. safe mode when it works shows a fine picture

So i dont believe its the Video cards ( i could be wrong )

My temps on my Cards and Processor where very low 50's for GPu's and 35 for CPU under load.

Only thing left ive got to try is maybe Hard drive failure?
Maybe my Processor is shot?
Memory problem?
Defective Mothboard?- i have a Extreme Rampage and all the light indecaders are green

I can get to Bios fine. *sometimes i can get into safemode w/o BSOD*

Windows boots up i get the please wait then welcome. Right as the desktop is about to come up it Blue Screens...

i mean im at a tottal block here and have no idea whats causeing the problem... and i really want to play BFBC2 :(

the bluescreen says its a hardware issue thats all i can read before the system reboots and BSOD and reboots and BSOD in a cycle unless i hold the power button to turn it off.

Sorry i for the wall of text this is all i know so far and really need help

Next time the bluescreen comes up take a picture of it the information is very valuable towards sovling the problem,

Cause all the zeros and well basicly everything that is in a bluescreen is information that is used to explain what is wrong.

What i can advice you to do is Update you bios

(Just go to your motherboard brand website follow insctructions and download new bios)

Also update to newest drivers for your graphics card 10.1 or 10.2 i prefer 10.1 due to its stability

As far as i know this bluescreen is common on vista and its usually a motherboard issue so try updating your bios..

Also run Memtest for atleast 1-2 hours to make sure thats not the problem and hdd

rarely cause bluescreens, however overclocking can so if you've done that try puting

more voltage just a tiny bit at the time or just lower the fsb, basicly check everything  in the bios.

Also try if you have a spare hdd to re-install windows to make sure there are no driver issues, remember always to un-install drivers when you are in safe mode.

I'll try to keep you up to date on my research
