    :)

    Yes, I do only keep a few choices in my pocket, but that may soon grow to a few others. I just know what I use works for sure, because I use it and use it hard, so I feel confident in suggesting it.. know what I mean.

    Well good luck deciding, and hope you can get this sorted out!

    Keep us posted

    Time for an update,
    I got my the replacement memory and cpu. Both companies were exceptional with their returns. Once the packages I sent them were received, they had the replacement at my door in a couple of days.
    The new memory is perfect, it can run memtest86 all day with no errors. It is even stable at 1.5V

    I reinstalled windows 7 and had things up and running for a few minutes. However, the problem I was having before is back. Once I install the graphics driver, if I try watching a movie, or sometimes even just when windows is loading, the screen with start flashing different colors and locks. I am forced to hard boot. I have tried the newest drivers from Gigabyte and Intel and the same thing happens.

    Could this be a driver issue? BIOS? or hardware? Since I am sure I have working cpu and memory, it seems like it could only be the motherboard.

    Any ideas?

    what are you using the onboard graphics? using latest bios? updated to latest direct x?

    EDIT: what kind of display are you using as certain chips only support certain resolutions at full hd

    I am using the i5 integrated graphics.
    BIOS: f5
    I will try a Direct X update.

    I have it output through the VGA to a monitor, and also have tried outputting through HDMI. The flashing screen happens when I have both or just one hooked up.

    Great to hear all your new hardware arrived in a timely fashion!

    I really think you may need to buy a actual GFX Card, even a cheap one would be better than onboard, and onboard may always give you issues with HD movies

    Yeah, its been a head-ache.
    I think I got if figured out. I believe it is the video driver. It kept on crashing after I did a fresh install, but only after I installed the graphics driver. The only stable driver I could find is the latest one from Intel's website (15.​17.​7.​64.​2141, dated June 8th).
    I just completed the install about 5 hrs ago, and so far its been working perfectly....knock on wood.

    Hey well at least you found a working driver now though, so maybe you wont have to buy another card after all.

    well that didn't last long :-(
    I installed Dynamic Energy saver and turned it on. While running prime95, the computer entered S1 sleep state (the power LED was blinking indicating S1) but everything seemed the same and prime95 kept on running fine. I have my computer set to never go into sleep mode so this was strange to begin with.

    After I restarted the computer, the flashing screen mentioned earlier would hit during windows startup and lock the computer. I restored the computer to 2 previous images that were running fine, and it still crashed during windows startup.
    Is it possible for Dynamic Energy Saver to affect the BIOS? Do you think I should Flash the BIOS or play around with the settings? Am I even looking in the right direction?
    I really don't have the money to start buying other components just to troubleshoot.

    Yes, Dynamic Energy Saver directly interacts with and changes the BIOS, I suggest you uninstall the program and the clear your CMOS.

    Then flash to the latest BIOS

    Be sure to use Qflash and Disable Keep DMI Data, here is a guide

    Ok I'll try that. Although I couldn't find "Keep DMI Data"

    I didn't see H55-USB3 BIOS on the link you sent, but I do have the f5 BIOS which is the lastest on the Gigabyte website. I also found an f6 BIOS which seems very new (perhaps still beta)

    Should I stick with f5 or try the new f6?

    Note: When I first got the computer, I updated the BIOS to f5 using @BIOS. After reading your links, it seems that was a bad idea. Could a bad flash be the reason for all my problems? Or is it possible that f5 doesn't play well with my set-up? I never had a problem with my first install, but ever since I did the BIOS update, I have a lot of difficulty.
