I'm really at a loss as to what to do next, I don't have money/resources to try and swap hardware out and see if one of them is the cause, so all I can do is make sure whether or not it is a driver or system file issue. Any useful info in the cbs log?
CBS.log showed quite a few net framework errors that were re-installed. If you are still having problems I would still run a chkdsk with "/F /R" The "F" is for fix. without it nothing gets done

I shall try that right now. I did some memtest passes yesterday(5 to be exact) and no errors found there, so that makes me feel better.

I tried the chkdsk but I think I may have done it wrong after some research. I tried entering "chkdsk /R /F" but I think I should've done /R by itself and THEN /F? This is the message I got:
"The type of the file system is NTFS.
Cannot lock current drive.

Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the net time the system restarts y/n"
So I hit yes and rebooted and let it do its thing for a couple hours. But the issues are still here, so I'm curious as to whether or not it worked or I performed it incorrectly. Let me know if I should run these again if I did them wrong.

Another question: would you recommend/adivse against using either Defraggler (Defraggler - Download) or CCleaner? Would they help with this issue?

Don't know if this should be a concern or not, but before and after the reformats, I saved a partition I had that's 75gb (1TB hard drive)with some stock footage on it (I'm a visual fx artist, go figure). Should this be reformatted as well? I also had to install a DVD drive to reformat, and its an Asus drive. I read somewhere Asus sometimes can cause issues, but I installed it AFTER the reformat so who knows.

Thanks for all the help btw, I'm learning a lot along the way. Here's hoping we're close to a solution!

At the end of chkdsk there should be a short report. I can tell more from that nd I do not advice defragers and certainly not untill you fix the current problem.

Chkdsk found no problems. At some point you may want to start thinking about repair install or clean install.

Well, again I did reformat and re-install windows on my system twice now. How might I go about doing a repair install?

Just did another full, complete re-install on my hard drive, made sure to delete all partitions so everything was fresh. Still no dice, but look at this. This is happening in a few games I've tried. The lag spikes are in a pattern, happening over and over with even spacing between them. Could it be my video card or CPU? And is there a way to test them?

Just got a BSOD finally, instead of just a freeze-up. I attached the minidump as well. I reformatted today and installed the basics: latest versions of flash, java, ATi Catalyst, etc. Any answers?

Related to PalmUSBD.sys USB Driver for Palm OS Handheld Devices from Palm, Inc. I would remove it at least to test.
