      Hi! Have you tried removing hardware one piece at a time? I’d start with removing one RAM chip at a time, try reinstalling, then any peripherals (modem, etc). Long process, but it may work for you. Another good thing to do is get the exact “irq” error and search on google. Good luck!

      It sounds like you tried a lot. But to be certain, make sure you try to perform the install with ONE RAM chip only, ONE Video card installed, AND One Hard Drive. See what happens. Double-chcek that SLI is NOT enable when you remove one of the cards in the BIOS prior to installation.

      It might be the BIOS settings (update BIOS??), cd-drive, cables?
