Have you tried a different hard drive in your PC? I had an defective Samsung Spinpoint F3 that won't work but looked like it was good in another PC.
you know i dont think i can thank you enough... i switched hard drives to see and its been installing linux without a hitch for the last about 30minutes , if this actually continues to work i will mark you as best answer. THANK YOU SO MUCH
no the problem is it freezes randomly in every o/s i have installed sometimes it will work for awhile and let me install windows 7 or ubuntu or it will freeze ... now if i get them installed it will freeze some where between 2s to 1 minute into the o/s but if i use memtest it never freezes
Ah then not sure if what I can sugguest will do any good since you probably already tried it. Also couldnt find the MB asruckm3a770me so assuming it was AsrucKM3A770DE
reset bios back to defaults just in case something was changed by mistake. (if possible get the newest bios)
make sure you installed the cpu properly with thermal paste and cooling (avoid OC anything until you know everything is working good)
Confirm your processor is supported by your motherboard.
Also confirm your ram is supported by your mother board.
