Hello,
I have had many problems with my new computer.First were BSODs randomly and stuff, so i've done clean boots and stuff over and over again, and here I am doing another clean boot. At first I thought the problem was the PSU because my gcard recommends a 450W , I had a 430, now I have a 600W . So I'm kind of stumped on the issues. I am currently installing Windows 7 Updates and have been having IDLE errors.
The BSODs I had before were Error code 50. :

with new z77 mb make sure you have all the bios updates for the mb. there a lot out for your mb some for cpu code and some for ram and bug fixes. also in the bios make sure you turn on xmp in dram timing and set your ram to it right speed.

You should run a memory test program such as memtest86 for at least three passes to test the memory. The problem you are experiencing is normally caused by problem memory.

Make sure the physical connection is there. It might be caused by a stick of ram not pushed fully into the slot. If that doesn't work, run the memtest.
Also, as a passing thought, maybe one of your ram modules is faulty. See if your pc runs properly with one stick of ram. 4GB is enough for it. Trial and error.

check in your mb boot screen for the bios it have a bios rev. check to see that there one newer then the one on msi web page.
if there is more then one i do them in order. 2.3...2.4..2.5..
download the files one at a time then expand the bios file then copy it to a usb stick.
you then reboot and go into the mb bios screen under advance mode.
there be a flash update program inside the bios.
first time you run it make sure to save the old bios first. to update to the next bios you point the bios flasher program to your usb stick. dont use the windows bios flasher it brick your mb.
