Random reboots and BSOD

I have recently put together the following system:
System Details:
Intel Pentium 4 640 3.2 GHz (800MHz FSB 2mb cache EMT64) Processor LGA775
Asus P5ND2-SLI Deluxe nForce LGA775 board
4 x Corsair 512 Value Select 240-pin PC5300 DDR2
Inno3D 7900GTX 512mb DDR3 PCI-E x16
Windows XP Pro SP2
It has started BSOD and restarting itself. This happened alot, every morning when starting the PC, it would usually load eindows then crash after a few minutes. Upon restarting, it would sit at the POST where it would show CPU info and would not continue to where it usually shows up memory info. PC had to be powercycled a few times before it would get any further. I remember seeing a BSOD saying the BIOS may not be ACPI compliant. I upgraded BIOS to latest version, but did not fix. Also got to a stage where PC would not POST at all. Had to reset the BIOS and it came alive again. But once the system was up and running in Windows, it would either crash after 10 or so minutes, or it would be fine (even had it left on over night and was still OK) Initially I thought it was a memory problem and ran memtest86+ which found errors. I removed the suspect module and ran test again with no errors.
System was OK for a couple of days, then again, another BSOD. Not sure what was on the BSOD as it restarted itself (Yes, it is set to not auto restart upon error).
Not sure how relevant this is, but the crash occurred when loading up a game and I assume when it was about to begin.

The problem seems to occurr in the morning when the PC has not been used for extended period of time.
The components are still under warranty and I want to make sure I've identified the correct hardware problem before returning.

Any help in finding the problem would be much appreciated.

BIOS: Beta Version 1101 which is the latest. Was crashing before this update too.

Not sure of system Temps but quite sure they are normal. Will check anyway.

I have posted on the asus forums and done all the basic troubleshooting.
