    OK ... good stuff.

    Can you try running it only on your CPU and then only your Video card? If all goes well, I think RAM may be at the centre of your problems.

    Faulty RAM ... open her up and take it out (I know its hard to open).
    If you have more than 1 stick of RAM on your motherboard, take one out at a time, reboot into Windows and run the burnin test again.

    Then replace the faulty one ... :grinthumb
