As this has happened for a while, it may be a bit tough, but do you remember adding any new hardware and/or software around the time this started? Or, did you update any drivers?

Please try to update all the drivers you can, especially for your graphics card and network adapter.

However, the problem may be hardware-related since a reformat didn't solve it. So, please run one of the memory testers in my signature (below my post, 2nd sentence). I would recommend Microsoft's memory test, which I have found to be more user-friendly, but that's just my preference. There are instructions on the links. You only need to run one pass. Are there any errors?
