Let's start with some basic troubleshooting tests and we can proceed from there.
First, I'd suggest running a hard drive test available from the manufacturer of your hard drive. You can either get the one that works within Windows, or you can download a bootable one and run the test from the boot CD.
Next, I'd suggest this free memory tester: http://www.memtest86.com/
Boot from the CD and let the test run for a minimum of 3 passes (overnight is better). If you get errors you can stop the test right then and there (and we may have more suggestions if there is a memory error).
Finally, I'd suggest running this free software from within Windows: http://www.sisoftware.co.uk/index.html?dir...n=sware_dl_3264
It'll give you a basic idea if there are any problems in your motherboard.
Post back with the results of these tests and we can move on from there.
