    You can't unfortunately.
    Usually it is hardware, sometimes because of a cracked system and rarely (last assord) from Microsoft.

    sorry, we must be in very different time zones, I appreciate you trying to help. I'm just really frustrated with this thing.

    Whilst I applaud you both for your endeavours I think it's time you went back to trying to fix it the old fashioned way.

    Strip the PC down so it's going to boot off the bare essentials, onboard video and one stick of Ram , OS drive, Keyboard and mouse.

    If you can get it to boot off a Live Linux flash drive and error consistently in the computers present state you could use that instead of the OS drive.

    Enter the Bios and set to defaults. Then set up UEFI if used etc . I believe the G Skill Ram should be detected and set itself to 1.2v .

    Start the PC and if it errors with one stick of Ram swap it for another of the bought Ram. If it errors with each of them swap it for a a stick of a completely different brand if you have one.

    If that errors off a Live linux you're looking at three components PSU, Motherboard or CPU.

    At this stage I'd probably disconnect/reconnect all cabling ,reseat the CPU and even install the stock CPU fan , if available.

    It's troubleshooting by elimination. Very time consuming but after each success add another piece of hardware.

    Please don't be offended axe0, you can both ignore my advice if you like but that's the way I'd tackle the problem.

    I ran memtest86+ last week for over 24 hours. went to 6 passes with no errors
    Unfortunately, 6 passes is NOT enough.
    Please read the instructions and run it again.
    Also, what is the frequency of the RAM? This can be found in the BIOS.

    No problem @Torquemada, we are going the same way but with different methods
    If that errors off a Live linux you're looking at three components PSU, Motherboard or CPU.
    That would be 2 components as the CPU has already been tested.

    Thanks for the thoughts @Torquemada

    What parts are likely causing the issue? Can we narrow it down at this point?

    I mean is it most likely CPU, motherboard, power supply? Or are there others?

    I need to get this machine running. Its a replacement for my primary work computer for my business. My existing one is in need of replacement. I'm to the point now where the cost of buying new parts outweighs the cost of the time I am losing working on the problem.

    Let me know what you guys think.
    The more input the better.

    Thanks again axe for all of your help
