Libram, as ZigZag has stated, you need to run driver verifier.

Alright, let us know how the clean boot goes.

Also, I am curious, what do you mean by this:

I should re-iterate that the problem still could be memory. Memtest86+ is not fool proof and has been known not to catch bad modules from time to time. I see that you have 3 GB of RAM. What RAM configuration do you have, i.e. one 1 GB and one 2 GB module, three 1 GB modules?
  • Download and install CPU-Z and Upload screenshots of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs. In the SPD tab, upload an image of each slot.

Means that there are no errors on the registry.

The RAM is DDR2 and two sticks are a strange number like 512MB (I don't remember exactly) and the other two are another crazy number I can't remember, but they are also the same number. They are stock with the PC.

I would run Driver Verifier, but my Restore feature isn't working on the PC. I create a restore point, but the motherboard option for recovering doesn't work and trying to recover via Windows 7 OEM Disc doesn't find a recovery file.
Is there a way I can set up a recovery feature that my BIOS would recognize instead of ignore?
(I'm looking into creating a Windows back up partition similar to the HP Factory Image portion that comes on HP machines)

EDIT: Nvm, I figured it out. Running the driver verifier now

The question I was trying to ask is: How do you know the registry is clean? Are you using software to clean it?

Also, why was CPU-Z not run to post screenshots? That information would be helpful...

It only finds dead path from uninstalled programs. It doesn't find corruptions. Using ccleaner, also I have ONLY used it twice after the computers freezing problems have returned. I don't like using it much, since their solution is to always remove the error instead of fixing it.

Sorry, I forgot to include those. I don't know which you are looking for, so I uploaded them all if that is not a problem
Also driver verifier is still running. So far there hasn't been a crash/lockup yet.






Also found the slots in CPU Z: In slot one that RAM chip is 1024MB: Slot 2 is 512MB: Slot 3 is 1024MB: Slot 4 is 512MB. All four chips are clocked the same.

Sounds like you have mix and match RAM. Try running with the two 512s removed. Before doing so, upload a screenshot of all four slots through the SPD tab of CPU-Z. In CPU-Z's SPD tab, there is a dropdown list in the upper left corner under Memory Slot Selection so you can see each RAM module installed. That information would be helpful.

Once you have uploaded the information for each slot, remove the two 512 MB modules. Avoid Static Damage to Your PC when swapping out modules.

Ok. I will have to keep the computer turned of for a few hours before re-booting it since it only tends to crash after its been left off over long extended periods of time. Turning it off and back on a few minutes later doesn't seem to bring about any crashing.
I'll boot it back up tomorrow with just two sticks.

So far there hasn't been a freeze up yet. I'll give it a week before I decide if it was the RAM or not.

Fair enough. Let us know how the system responds over the next week.

So just this morning my computer finally freezes. It was only on for about five minutes after bringing it out of hibernation. It was followed by a infinite beep this time from the motherboard to.
I turn it off and kept it off for a few seconds, then switched it back on. It froze up again a few minutes later, so I switched it off. This time it instantly turns its self back on as soon as I let my finger off the power button, but nothing loads, not even the BIOS.
A third time I switch it off, this time from the small switch on the back of my power supply, to keep it from turning its self back on like last time. I keep it off a few seconds and switch it back on and so far its runny as normal again.

I gave it more then a week, like I said in my post above
So i'm going to buy some RAM to see if anything works out. Does anyone know a 'good' brand of RAM for my motherboard?

Here are the exact specs from the P LB Benicia Memory upgrade specs:

Dual channel memory architecture
Four 240-pin DDR2 DIMM sockets
Supported DIMM types:
PC2-5300 (667 MHz)
PC2-6400 (800 MHz)
Non-ECC memory only, unbuffered
Supports 2GB DDR2 DIMMs
Supports up to 8 GB on 64 bit PCs
Supports up to 4 GB* on 32 bit PCs
*32-bit operating systems cannot address a full 4.0 GB of memory.

You can click this link for more information on my motherboard.

Edit: Was thinking of getting G.SKILL 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2.
