Solved Multiple BSOD, Intermittent Boot

Specs: Windows 7, Core 2 E6XXX
Hi everyone,

I am here for a second opinion. Here are the symptoms:

1. Computer was running fine. No major issues save for rare GPU artifact. This is usually fixed by plugging and re plugging monitor or restart.
2. Computer suddenly shuts down overnight and begins reboot cycle. Upon Windows Log In, BSODs. Usually 0X00000024 or 0X0000007E, among many, many others.
3. Swapped harddrive - Same BSOD. Old Harddrive was readable on another computer, though I couldn't boot into the OS on the drive - Understandable. Retrieved important data regardless.
4. Bought new HD - Tried to install Windows On it. Windows install failure at about 25%. BSOD (same errors as above)
5. Powering off and on results in intermittent Boot. It may take me several tries to get to POST before booting to BSOD. I'm -reluctant- to diagnose a PSU error.

I have an extra PSU but it's a real pain to test if PSU or MoBo error. Has anyone else had similar issues? Would you lean towards MoBo or PSU failure?

Thank you very much.

I would go for power supply, don't spend any money, until you are sure.

Here is a FREE tester.

Please post your systems specs in detail. It's difficult to help when we have no idea what hardware you're working with.

Test your RAM sticks using memtest86 or Windows memory diagnostic.
