    ha very true, i might be able to get a laptop from my brother.
    But good news! I'm writing this post from my PC. I got it stable enough to get on here. What I did was set the BIOS to 'optimal settings' then I set 'Performance Mode' from TURBO to STANDARD.
    Then I set it to use just 1 of the 4 cores.

    The weird thing is that I went to the Nvidia site to get the drivers. I removed the old ones in safemode and installed the new ones, but they're not registering. If i go to device manager it says they installed incorrectly. The card doesnt even show up in DXdiag..

    Well at least im making progress!

    some folks have been having crashes similar to you but with a i7 860 chip and disabling c1e and c3/c6/c7 states in advanced cpu features in bios stopped the crashes so you might wanna try it,re-enable all cores again and try it perhaps the bios you flashed too is causing the crashes its best to flash back to the bios you had on there before the crashes started if you can

    Now that you have it running I suggest you test your memory with Memtest86+ and then, or first, your hard drive with the manufacturers tools.

    Let me know if you need a link to HDD diagnostic tools, if so tell me the brand/model of the drive.

    Is your case very hot inside, like no air flow?

    Actually another update:

    I reinstalled windows 32-bit (i had 64 before this whole time) on the good drive and everything seems to be running pretty smooth with the settings im on and the nvidia drivers installed correctly. I can even access my old drive just fine.

    The only remaining problems are
    1) I can't turn on all 4 processers in the BIOS or i get a screen lockup when running windows. I'm using 2 right now and it runs fine.
    2) ATI card still wont work without crashing (presumably from over heating)

    I have to go to bed now but i'll run Memtest86+ in the morning.

    CPU may be faulty then? I never heard of anyone having to disable cores unless they damaged their CPU's via super overclock or CPU was faulty on delivery.

    I have no idea.. is there any way to check if the problem lies with the CPU?

    Actually for this, I would call Intel and see what they have to say. They will run you through the BIOS setup/troubleshooting hassles and likely see that there is a Problem and RMA for you.

    Yah its weird, even on 3 cores im running ok. Just the 'ALL' option in the BIOS that causes my system to freeze. Any idea how long it usually takes to RMA from intel?
