The moment I open a game, it gets closed. With minecraft (not very CPU/Memory demanding) as soon as I press Login, the window closes, and with Doom 3, the computer freezes for a moment an i get a notification saying something along the lines of "Doom 3 has stopped working, windows is looking for a solution", and then it closes out.

Every time the minecraft startup fails, this text document is saved to my desktop (Its pretty huge, so i will only post the interesting bits):

A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:

EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x00000000742eaa4f, pid=2540, tid=1328

# If you would like to submit a bug report, please visit:
# http://java.sun.com/webapps/bugreport/crash.jsp
# The crash happened outside the Java Virtual Machine in native code.
# See problematic frame for where to report the bug.

Everything else just seems to be minecraft programming jargon, but i can post more if need be.
Every MS program works, Audacity (3rd party audio editing software)works, firefox, youtube, newgrounds (flash) all work fine.

The story:
I recently built a new system, and when it arrived, it came with the wrong disc drive. I was unable to install anything until i got the right drive so in the meantime, I tried to boot from my old systems HDD, and wudya know, it worked. It booted in safe mode, so i put everything on the install disc onto a External hard drive, and ran it via USB. Once the Ethernet controller was installed, i just got all my updated drivers from the net. I deleted all of my old drivers, all of my old useless applications, and ran a Registry Cleaner. I don't game often, so this problem went unnoticed for about a month. I'm not sure if it was something i did during the system change, or during the month long period i was using it, but the system change seems to be a likely culprit.

System Specs:
**BIOSTAR TH67+ (Never again will I buy a biostar MOBO, not a fan.)
Intel i5 2500 3.3 GHZ (built in gpu)
4GB G.Skill
Rocketfish Sound Card
Win7 64bit

**All P67 and H67 series motherboards were recently recalled for having a defect in the chip-set controlling the SATA 3.0 ports. Both of my hard drives were installed in SATA 6.0, I was assured that data loss only occurs in the SATA 3.0 ports.

Doom has been re-installed three times.
Any ideas?

...false alarm, still having the same issue. Just ran a registry cleaner, it found hundreds of issues, but none of them fixed my problem.
