    What kind of memory do you have. I had a very similar problem. I found out my memory runs at 2.1V and my MB defaults to 1.8V. Once I changed it in the Bios it worked flawlessly. I don't know if this is your problem but it is worth the 5 minutes to research your memory voltage and the bios setting.

    Also check your boot setting in the bios to make sure that your HD is one of the first two options. Sometimes it won't put the HD on there by default. It is rare but happens.

    Is your computer overclocked, if it is first put it all on defolt. Did you check in bios for boot sequence?

    Don't be scared of overclocking just read up before hand so you know what you're doing and take it step by step. Raise things slowly.

    Do you want to try overclocking? I'm willing to give some beginner level advice/instruction if you want. :toast:
