I have never seen anyone refer to Mirror's Edge as "ME", but that's just me.

"Copy Pasta".
Yeah, have none of you really seen this before?

It's unlikely that you have bad ram, but it is never a bad idea to test it and rule it out. What are the specs on the computer? It might be that you have a particular mobo issue that can be resolved with a bios update or newer versions of the mobo drivers.
My motherboard is the ASUS P8P67 LGA 1155. I just RMA'd the last one as per recommendation from the tech shop guys, and this brand new one has the same problem. I also have a brand new PSU that is verified good. And I am about 80% through the memory test and MemTest hasn't found any errors yet, so it's looking like the ram isn't the culprit. I also an an Intel Core i5 2500-K CPU. I'm running Win7 off a 64 GB Crucial SSD, and I have a 1TB Seagate HDD for storage. 
 
I am really think this is a problem with the Win7 update I just got. I'm not sure it's coincidence that as soon as I updated, the problem came back.

have you rolled back your OS through system recovery?? - if you can try installing windows updates one at a time until you get the BSOD again.Is this a fresh install of win 7? - if not can you wipe & reinstall, get a new HD and install to that, or install win 7 to a flash drive? I've had issues in the past where an old and or unused driver can cause the system to crash on boot-up.
I can't go through sysrecovery because I cant even get to Windows. It just fails as soon as I try and get in. 
 
Here's a video of what happens. Sorry for the poor aspect ratio (I recorded it on my iPod touch)

@CandleJakk: Literally just bought this PSU, and i tested it on another machine. But good input, thanks.

I just tried swapping out one stick and then the other, and I get the same BSOD error. I will install memtest to a flash drive and try booting from that to see if both sticks are possibly bad.

@HitmanAgent47: I'll try this, but I was wary to believe it was a RAM problem because it worked fine for a few weeks, then crapped out. And when I got my new mobo, it worked fine until I updated Win7, and then the problem resurfaced. But I will try swapping the RAM around to find a faulty stick.

Posted this over at PCHF, but no one is responding. Thought I might try here. 
 
I am having a problem on my new machine: a BSOD  pops up on start-up. The BIOS splash screen will come up, and then the Windows 7 "Starting Windows" screen will appear. It will look as if Windows is about to start, and then a  will flash for a few milliseconds, and then the computer will reboot back to the BIOS splash screen. 

I took my computer to the local tech shop, and they spent like 20 minutes with it and determined it was probably a motherboard problem. I don't think so, because after RMAing the motherboard AND buying a new power supply (they thought some frayed wires may have shorted something), the exact same problem has come up.

An interesting note: I got the computer up and running yesterday after receiving my new motherboard, and it worked fine. However, after shutting down the computer and installing new updates, the problem resurfaced. 

I thought it might have something to do with this thread, but the thread specifies that it's only a problem on 32-bit copies of Win7, and my machine is 64-bit.

Any suggestions? I will supply any needed information. I cannot supply  logs because I cant even get the computer to boot Windows.

We get it, you like BF3.

I've got the EVGA 560 Ti in my set up, and I like it. It's a two-slotter, and it runs like a beast.

For me it just boils down to this: 
 
I think I'd enjoy watching L.A. Noire more than I enjoy playing it. 
Interesting that you say that: my girlfriend hates video games, yet she has enjoyed watching me play L.A. Noire.  
 
To me, the game seems to model a cop procedural television series. The cases are sometimes connected, and sometimes not, much like various story-archs within TV series. I've enjoyed the game mechanics, though I can understand why someone would find them tedious. I feel that L.A. Noire is very unlike any other game before it, and that has led to its divisive nature.

Yeah it looks awesome. And I love the "Coming up next" sidebar. Very cool indeed.
