I installed windows then proceded to update all drivers, including BIOS. I then (not knowing what I was doing) locked the cpu because I did not wish to overclock and possibly overheat the cpu. This was in March. I then attempted to install office suite (home and student 2010, already had product key) and Microsoft had to remotely clean up my registry in order to get it to install. About a month later, I installed service pack 1. Soon after installing service pack 1, I started having blue screens, hard lockups, and shockwave and flash crashes, along with graphix triangles during certain games. For everything besides the graphix triangles (alt tab out, go back in its fine) I would have to restart my computer. I took it to best buy after about 2 weeks of this, they then ran a diagnostic, unlocked my core, and found some corrupted system files which they then replaced and told me I should not have an issue. It was fine for about two days, but its back now. I took it back, and they said it was a windows issue and that I need to repair/reinstall windows.I tried to choose the upgrade option (I have the disc) and came up with this error code: 0x80070241. I then tried sys restore, and was given a diffeerent error code for every file i tried, none being successful.I was then going to do a fresh install, but I'm not sure how to do so without creating another partition. I have everything backed up to my secondary hdd.
