Various performance drops

I have an ATI card which gets the grey screen of death fair enough that crashes my computer when ever i play a game or leave my computer idle or basicly do anything else,so thanks to a ****ing lazy bunch of ****s over at ATI who've known about this problem for 3 months and no fix as of yet.

Performance goes -
-good
-crashing becuase of ati card
-various blue screens (made another thread,with no solution)

now,i've reformatted last week,computer getting worse by the 'crash
now im getting crashes which windows says are performance crashes

-Bootmgr image is corrupt,system cannot boot

-"The file is possibly corrupt,the file header checksum does not match the computer ed checksum"

-Windows failed to load becuase of a critical system driver is missing or corrupt

-Stop c00000221 unknown hard error, \systemRoot\system32\ntdll.dll

-many,many differnt blue screen codes.

So...pretty much on the verge of ****ing this peice of shit out the window,as ive no money becuase i work from home on computer.

computer specs- (if it helps)
AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Dual Core Processor (3.6GHz,6MB Cache)

Patrick,
Well lad, with all of the problems you've described, then my recommendatation is: Clean Install.

If immediately after the clean install everything is working, then run Windows 7's Backup and Restore to perform a System Image backup and also after that, go back there and make yourself a System Repair CD.

Now create a System Restore point an create a System Restore point BEFORE each and every piece of software or hardware you add to your system. This a lots of work but at least then you will be able to get back to a stable point.

To create a System Restore point:
WIN + Pause/Break combination of keys
Choose System Protection in the left-hand task pane.
Click on the Create button

WIN is that key with the funny looking wavy flag on it.

Patrick,
That's your call. I consider Win7 to be the best OS that MS has ever produced.

And to be honest, If I was a betting man I'd give a 100 to 1 odds that we have a case of operator malfunction.

Sounds like a hard drive with problems to me ever issue you listed could be from Hard disk getting bad clusters. Run check disk and report the results.
