Rampage III Extreme not accepting Bios changes to boot drive. It boots up normally but when you open any file or any program including the Control Panel It flashes a Blue Screen of Death for a fraction of a second (not long enough to read anything) then the PC shuts down and powers off automatically. I change the Bios settings to boot my o.s. from another drive on the machine or the USB flash drive but the machine still boots from the C drive. Please help!

Do a repair install of OS with bootable media(DVD/USB), it seems like file system got corrupted.

Or try to update BIOS to latest version.

And how many drives you have ? Did you tried safe-mode to see if the system stays stable ?

Thanks for getting back to me. I have 4 Hard Drives and 2 DVD drives I have tried all the USB ports and disc drives with the bootable media and have the latest version of the BIOS. Safe mode has the same problem. The PC is only 2 years old and I have never overclocked it. It has always worked good and it has a Corsair H2O cooler on the processor and has never gotten too hot. The fans in the Antec 1200 Case keeps everything cool. If you think of anything else to try let me know because I am running out of ideas. Thank you for your help.

Ok, first check the health of HDD's with : http://crystalmark.info/software/CrystalDiskInfo/index-...

Second thing to check is RAM, you can check it with Windows in built memory diagnostics tool or with : http://www.memtest.org/

The last thing to check is MB, take out all the RAM sticks, start the PC, hear for beep sound, if it beeps then its probably Ok, if it doesn't then its faulty.

And I said you to (Repair-Install the OS with a Bootable Media, like DVD or USB drive), did you tried it ?

Note: Whenever you try to repair install the OS, unplug any other Hard Drive's, after the process is over, plug the drive's back.

Thanks I will give these things a try. And I did try the Repair-Install with a Bootable Media DVD and USB drive with no luck.

Little while ago and no answer. I have the same issue since a month ago and I am thinking about 3 options: memory, psu or processor.
Tonight I am going to reset the bios and clean my OC, clean the memory sticks and see the result.
My specs:

Rampage III Extreme
i7 930 (OC to 4.2ghz)
8GB Corsair DDR3 1600mhz Vengeance
2 SSD's from OCZ (can also be the problem)
Asus GTX 780 DirectCU II
PSU OCZ 750 watt
