Flashing the BIOs with the most current stable for your M/B, you should
have selected to reset to the default settings right after the update. That would accomplish the same thing as clearing the BIOS by the pin method or by removing the battery (and power cable) for 10 seconds, except then you have a new BIOS with bug fixes and more features, hopefully. Try the default or safest settings first, later you can tweek it.
Do you have a live CD or DVD with a memory testing utility? There are all kinds. Even the 7 DVD will test your memory. Check with the manufacturer to see just exactly what memory they reccommend for their M/B? Memory is cheaper than a M/B.
If this still hasn't helped, most likely candidate is the M/B (ouch!). It sounds like the data is being corrupted as it passes through the data buss, which is the M/B.
