ASRock FM2A85X Extreme4 FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: It was bundled with a 4.2ghz quad core cpu, which works fine until...

Cons: Never successfully boots into Windows (7). I am no ID10T, in fact I am only 2 classes away from finishing my PC Support degree, and I cannot get this board to work with ANYTHING. I have tried disabling every single option in the BIOS, 4 different brand hard drives, 2 different brand and speed/voltage/size ram sticks, usb/ps2 keyboards, removed every installed card, disconnected any unnecessary devices--still wont boot. If I am lucky, the Windows loading screen will begin to display and then freeze--otherwise, BSOD.

Other Thoughts: I just tried to contact the manufacturer, but it is Chinese New Year and it says not to expect a response until after (not unreasonable, but definitely no help to me solving the problem). Should I ever get the board working, I will modify my rating (if that is possible), but for now, I am stuck with $250 in useless computer hardware, and no computer (I am writing this from my laptop).
