Try with a single stick of RAM at a time. Take it down to the bare minimum components (video, 1 stick of ram, HDD, CD-Rom, power button). What brand (with model number) of RAM are you using? I've had issues with certain brands with some motherboards.

The only other thing I could suggest is to change brands of motherboard. MSI is usually OK, but I've had an IBM board that had similar issues. I ended up going to ASUS and the problems disappeared. I know what you're going through - its not fun!!

Sounds like it's either CMOS battery (Windows goes wild when the battery runs down) or RAM.

How do your BIOS settings compare with the ones reflected at http://www.nvnews.net/reviews/msi_p7n_platinum/page_4.shtml ?
