    Thanks to everyone for their support but seems this thing might be a dead duck.

    Can someone here at Scan please tell me whats the quickest way to RMA these parts etc and how I get a replacement shipped for monday morning?

    Im currently doing memtest on that 512 module to see if it will work. Do you guys think I should just RMA that and order two 256mb modules just to be safe? Because I looked at the M2NPV-VM manual (downloaded from asus site) and only certain RAM modules can work in single channel apparently.... stupid asus mobo.

    Apparently on the corsair site they got compatible ram for this particular barebones but the mobos QVL doesnt mention those modules at all.. hmm..

    The ram is apparently running fine (passed memtest 5 times) but still getting that error 0x0000007B ... so guessing somethings f00ked up. I'm going to take the machine to my friend who works at computer exchange tomorrow and test parts till I find something that works.

    Then RMA the drive and RAM if I have 2.

    The hard drive was dodgy and apparently now the system keeps rebooting with the Corsair Value Select module I used (which is the same in the 3XS systems).

    How hard is it to just do a check on those 3XS systems and confirm bios settings with those machines?? It would have solved my problem ages ago if it was as simple as that (which im hoping it is).

    I've just had a chunk of RAM that passed every test I threw at it but still wouldn't boot. Changing it and the PC was fine so it goes to show the RAM tests don't always identify all issues.
