There are more than one cause for this ..
First the ram memory frequency is larger than the board supports..
second try to restore the bios to factory defaults so any odd settings like CPU's higher temperature limits to be removed..
Usually if the memory is to blame it will just not boot proper..and make a sort of loop ..but your issue seams like a cpu setting ..restore the Bios to factory optimal defaults and after that look into the MO BO's manual to see the frequencies and the maximum supported on a slot ..After that check them one by one and it will be ok ..cause if there was something wrong it would not boot at all..

    try to reinstall the operation system ...but if you have another hdd use it cause there is the possibility that it will not go all the way and stop during and its not that easy to fix stuff when it do not boot..
    Another thing is to try removing one by one the RAM units to see which one it has issues..When you will hit the one that makes trouble ..the computer will just keep going ...Too bad if there are 2G pieces cause I know they are kinda expensive and useful ..but if the CPU temperature protection is out of suspicion ..this is the only thing that may be wrong ...assuming that all the rest is new and ok ..Please do not put the hand on any ram ...use a rubber glove or handle them by the sides..cause any magnetism or statics may damage them..

    by the way ..I said nothing about Bios upgrading ..this stuff is done where you really need..I was just talking about getting to that factory defaults ..a kinda settings that are best for this model and are preset into Bios on F7 or F9 ...if you look careful you find the line ...
    anyway ...if the only issue is the gray in minutes after boot..this may be an issue of a damaged ram unit fact I think the actual symptom is not sudden but slowly in a minute or so until there is nothing on the display and nothing can be moved either ...

Is it possible to use intel duel core E5400 processor with MSI B75MA-P45 Motherboard? or any other motherboard support DDR3?

Hello here is the cpu list, for the asus board:

Here is the msi site:

Your current cpu will not fit on the msi board, because it is a different socket.

The asus board has socket LGA 775, and the msi board has socket 1155.

You have to buy a new cpu for the msi board, to make it work.

Here is the cpu list:

If you want to keep the socket 775, you probably have to find a used mainboard, because this socket type is phased out.

Some online stores still have this mainboard type available, but a new mainboard will have the DDR3 ram socket.

Good luck

usually that signals a memory failure of some kind, try pulling some of your ram chips and trying different configurations.
