wannabe1 asked;

Did you install the Sound Blaster software for HD Audio using the disk provided with your motherboard? I've seen those drivers be pretty glitchy under Windows 7.

Have you checked this out?
Can you loan a known good psu if only to try and eliminate it as the possible cause, the same with the video card, the only other thing I can think of and it is hard to identify is whether something has a flaw in it (a hairline crack) and when the system is getting warm the crack is getting wider and so breaking the circuit.

That helps a little. It appears to be driver related. Unfortunately, it doesn't name the driver involved.

In my experience, video and audio drivers would be the most likely suspects, followed by the chipset drivers.

Have you updated all these drivers to the latest versions or are you running your devices using native Windows drivers?

I think I have the native drivers for the most part, except on the video card. I tried to install from the cd but it said i had vista and it was too old for 7. I am waiting on the bluescreen, I did what you told me to so maybe that will tell us whats wrong. So do you think I should to install the mobo drivers, I am not sure if I did this or not but I can always try.

The noise that happens when it happens happened again, but this time no screen distortion. Only glitchy cursor and everything froze before it restarted itself. Unfortunately I did not get the blue screen we were looking for. Here is the error report:

Ok thank you all again for all your help! I think I figured out the problem. It was the drivers as suggested, I downloaded the newest driver from nvidia, like 260 or something. It worked fine and got rid of the problems with the screen distorting and the restarts, and the monitor not comming on. The problem I had with the new driver was that I would alt+tab out of wow and the screen would get huge, this also happened while looking at youtube along with beeps. So I just bought a new graphics card. I got a Sapphire radeon hd 5750. I chose ATI because I have an AMD processor. Hopefully this will be ok, I have heard some haters out there on the ATI cards, but it had a lot of good reviews on new egg. Thanks again!

Thank you for letting us know the issue is now resolved and for posting your solution so that others may learn.
Driver issues can manifest themselves in many different ways and that is why sometimes they can be difficult to pinpoint and the same goes for PSUs when they start playing up.
On the ATI choice it has been suggested before that they work better with AMD and who knows it is mostly down to personal preference, budget, intended use etc I currently have a sapphire HD card in my desktop which has an Intel CPU and have never had a problem with it, but previously I had a MB with an Athlon 3200+ CPU in it and had driver issues with it, this was finally cured by a hotfix from Sapphire it just wouldn`t work with the AMD drivers alone.
Anyhow glad you got it sorted :D
