Computer freezes multiply times on start up, requires hard reboot

Starting a few days ago When ever i booted my PC after about 3-5 minutes on it would freeze. After hard reboot I would either get BSOD or the monitor wouldn't work. I've ran a full scan with both avast and malwarebytes and I'm not infected. I'm running memtest now, 6 passes and no errors.

Memtest finished 7 passes not 1 error.. restarted system was fine til earlier when i got home.. turned on PC and few mins in it froze again. had to hard reboot a few times didn't get any BSOD this time.

Software Concerns:
Please remove Norton PC Checkup. It uses unnecessary resources and does not provide much benefit to the system. Take a look at Good and Free system security combination. for better options.

Analysis:
Code:
ASACPI.sys Sun Mar 27 20:30:36 2005 (42476C4C)
Older versions of ASACPI.SYS are a known BSOD problem on Windows 7. Update the driver by:
  1. Going to the Asus motherboard support site
    When you reach the website:
  2. Scroll down the page and click Utilities
  3. Hold Ctrl and press f (ctrl+f) to enter the browser's find feature
  4. Search for "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Win7 32&64-bit" (without quotes)
  5. Download and install the driver.
  6. After installation is complete, verify that it installed correctly.
    • Click Start Menu
    • Click My Computer
    • Go to C:\WIndows\System32\drivers\
    • Verify that the ASACPI.SYS file is dated 2009 or newer (2010,etc.)
You should also update your Realtek Ethernet Drivers from your ASUS support site. If you need help, please fill in your system specs in your profile and not in a post in this thread: System Info - See Your System Specs. Your current specs do not give enough information about your motherboard to help. Another option for providing us with hardware info:
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.

Are you intentionally overclocking the RAM? It shows running at nearly four times the speed that it is designed to run at. Either your BIOS configuration is a mess and should be set to defaults (the EXIT screen will have a load setup/optimized defaults option in the BIOS), or you have a problem with your memory, CPU, or motherboard.

I've never overclocked before. I'm assuming the bios is messed up. I'll try to set to default and re-post the screen shots.

I loaded setup defaults in BIOS. Nothing has changed though on CPU-Z.

It is not good that it did not change... Go back into your BIOS -> Advanced -> JumperFree Configuration -> DRAM Frequency -> Manual -> [1333 MHz]

Save and exit the BIOS. See if CPU-Z now shows the DRAM frequency at 667 MHz (or around that value).

I did that and on first reboot i was stuck at " Loading Asus Express Gate" After i did hard reboot I went back into BIOS switched it back to auto and then again to 1333MHz. Booted fine. First few minutes it was showing 667Mhz. Then it started jumping between 667 and 2333.. and now it's staying at 2333MHz.
