Just wait and see if you get another crash.

The re-install may have fixed the problem.

Let us know if you get any more BSoDs.

I'd install MSE or Avast 6, turn on the Windows Firewall and automatic Updates - make sure you have SP1 and are fully updated.

Then I'd work with Dave on your RAM timings which is where we left off when you tried the clean reinstall.

Formatted my PC once again, reinstalled Windows 7, updated EVERYTHING, got Service Pack 1, installed the ATTK0110 drivers through Windows Updates, watched a few YouTube videos, played a couple of games.

Everything was going fine, so I decided to install a game (World of Warcraft) using the DVD. It got to 10% but then the Desktop froze...I was still able to move the mouse cursor around, I was not able to CTRL + ALT + DEL to check System Processes...it was weird.

I restarted my PC and got the same black screen with white mouse cursor from before (see screen below).

Sigh, another update...

I tried turning on my PC and now it says BOOTMGR Corrupt (see screen below).

I restarted to see if I could access the BIOS but I wasn't able to...

What's next?

You need to boot the DVD Repair console or Repair CD to run Startup Repair

You can also tap the F8 key at reboot to access Repair console on Advanced Boot Options

Ok, PC is back up and running..not sure for how long though.

Funny part is that I didn't run system restore or repair...it started up fine just now.

When it does crash i'm not able to start windows up for a few hours it seems...

So what should I try now? Change memory voltages?

PS. Here are some pics of my BIOS settings, just the main menus.

I noticed that ACPI was turned off in the Power settings...is that normal?

aaand it just crashed, lasted 12 mins.

Could it be because of the motherboard battery?

I'd turn on ACPI 2.0 support to check the difference.

According to what I read here, having it Disable means the OS doesn't have ACPI to use which could explain the failure of the driver to function: Tech ARP - ACPI 2.0 Support
