Took my computer up to a shop for diagnostics. (BBOD help)

Been over a week so I called them up and find they still dont' know whats wrong with it. Only part I couldn't swap with a known working one was the cpu which didn't appear to be a problem. At least it looked fine in the bios when it came to clock speeds and temp.

All I can tell you is it started off with a random blue screen during a game which I thought may have been caused by overheating either in the cpu or gpu. Again though I've since then switched out the gpu , ram, hdd, power supply, and even the motherboard.

Eventually it would bluescreen before I could even boot into windows. I reformatted and found that I was getting bluescreens during installation of windows (multiple versions of windows).

They did say they managed to get windows on it but after time it'd still crash.

Anybody have any clue as to what is causing this as I wait for them to hopefully figure this out?

Also they had better only charge me the diagnostic flat flee because I didn't ask for anything else :)

Well if you can figure it out then help a brother out. I wouldn't take it to a shop if I had any clue as to why it is happening. In my mind it's obviously hardware related but I've switched everything out. Even the shop is telling me all the parts are good.

Except I don't have a extra cpu which just so happens to be the most expensive part minus my 680s.

As I stated bsod during installation. I mean it's in a shop right now so I can't really try to get a error code but I remember it cycling through around 3 different types of errors such as irql_not_less_or_equal and a couple others.

Different versions of windows being xp, 7, and 8. If you mean completely different like os or linux then no.
