If I leave the computer alone for a few minutes, it bsod's and restarts. I'm working on it, it bsod's randomly.I have replaced the mobo, graphics card, psu, had ram tested, fresh installed os, had cpu tested, replaced hd. Still, same sh**. Been on numerous forums, anandtech, nvidia, etc... No joy. I spent well over an hour with a person at nvidia and another at bfg both real fine folks I might add, but still same crap. I've downloaded and installed all drivers in safe mode, not in safe mode. The following are some random samples of the error msgs: video hardware error; shutdown unexpectedly.

Is there anyone out there that can help with this issue? I'm at a complete loss. :(
 
What do you mean by "had ram tested"? BSOD's are very often caused by faulty RAM. Have you manually set the RAM speed/timings/voltage to the manufacturers specs in the BIOS? Have you run memtest86+ overnight to test for RAM errors?

What are your idle and load CPU/GPU temps? Have you updated your motherboard BIOS to the latest version?

Is there a layer of dust between the cpu fan and the processor? My dad had tons of BSODs and after I got all the dust out of his system he was fine.
 
Did you test it with memtest? Even if your ram passes memtest you could still have problems with the RAM. Make sure you run memtest through more than just one pass. Try loading a Linux live DVD like SUSE and see if it crashes. You should also check your temps as maybe you simply didn't put your CPU cooler on and it's overheating.
