    Probably the video card. Do you have another one to test?

    Same here. Looks like the video card. Had it happen to me when I overclocked it and apparently overheated. Does pretty much the same thing and crashes upon boot into windows.

    If you replaced the cooling, then reseat the heatsink. That has only happened to me when my card is overheating.

    yea.

    Also... what powersupply are you using? What thermal paste did you use to put on the cooler?

    Just a tip, but next time you put images online, link it to the full-size one, not the thumbnails.

    hmmm. Its unlikely that its your powersupply. Give it a reseat. If you got any paste anywhere on the videocard other than on the core itself, make sure you clean it off.

    If you have as5, try that.

    I had that happen when I built my rig back in september. You can even find the thread I made... I rma'd the video card, and when I got it back, I had the same problem. Turned out to be my motherboard - DFI Lanparty UT Ultra D. Dunno what caused it, but after getting it back from rma, pc worked fine.

    That would be unethical. He broke it so the manufacturer shouldn't be responsible. Anyways, looks like you fuggered 'er up when you put on your aftermarket cooling. Either a short or maybe scratched the PCB/knocked off a small part. To be honest I agree with everyone above though, looks like your card is overheating.
