have you tried replacing the SATA cables they are fragile and don't like being bent in weird positions I had a run of brand new cables shipped with new motherboards from Biostar that were bad I was pulling my hair out trying to chase down BSOD's and weird errors on a handful of brand new systems I built it turned out to be the SATA cables

Bought a new serial ata cable, and replaced the previous one connecting the harddrive to the mobo. Did a clean install. I have since then installed solidworks, microsoft office, adobe flash, and Avira with no problems what-so-ever! (knock on wood). I am going to keep using the computer and see if things hold steady. Who would have guessed a $3 dollar cable would make a $1000 computer worthless?

I have had it happen more times than you could imagine SATA and PATA cables both
