Opps oh well i would get confused with all those topics. Oh yeah I did overclock my processor but now i have put it back to stock. I'll let u know if it is the reason for the BSODs.

Thanks,

Kurt

[edit: whops missed a few posts there ignore]
[double edit:]

I must admit i am not sure if it is relevant anymore but if you havent tested your harddrive i would do that, been loooking trough the post and it seems like a harddrive issue to me (or memory but you tested that allready)

hdd test i use is Drive Fitness test from hitachi

You mentioned two memory sticks, 1 512 MB DDR 400 (3200), the other 256 Mb 133!!! Aren't you making a mistake here? Shouldn't it be 256 MB 333??? If the other is 133 then it's a SDRAM and not a DDR like the 512 module. There are rather old boards which allow to choose either SDRAM or DDR but you cannot run the two types at the same time.

You mentioned that you overclocked the CPU, another potential source for problem. I suggest that you disconnet the computer from the wall socket, open the box, take out the small silvery battey that keeps CMOC user parameters, leave it out for 20 minutes, reinstall and reboot. You will get a checksome error which will disappear when you set time and date. Do all this with the 256 ram stick out.. If we succeed here then we'll try to set the BIOS latter to optimized performance.
