OKay...I'm very very depressed.

Here are my Specs:

WD 37GB 10,000 RPM SATA HD [Raptor] (This one connected to SATA on motherboard)
WD 250 SATA HD (Connected on SATA controller)
WD 80GB ATA HD (Connected on PCI ATA Controller)
WD 200 GB ATA HD (Connected on PCI ATA Controller)
WD 120 GB ATA HD (Controller on PCI ATA Controller)
So far there are two ATA controllers and one SATA controller.
DFI LanParty Ultra Infinity Rev. A (Motherboard)
AMD Athlon XP 3200+
Plextor DVD Burner
Sony CD Burner
Corsair 1GB dual channel match DDR ram
ATA controllers are Promise Technology TX1002
SATA controller is Silicon.
Running Windows XP (Installed on the Raptor)

I've just installed windows on a WD 37GB 10,000 RPM HD. Windows if freshly installed so I don't think that using the Windows repair would do any good. Everything runs fine, but after a bit it crashes. The computer completely freezes and I can only reboot it by pressing the reset button. I can't seem to pinpoint the problem. One of the Admins here said that if the problem is with the HD, it would only give me boot errors right? I've ran a diagnostic on the Raptor HD and it came out with 0 errors. OR could the problem be because I'm using too many controllers? (There are three total on my computer)
