So Windows install doesn't recognize the partiton as containing Windows? I would reformat that partition through Windows install and then try to reinstall Windows again.

Did that ant the windows looks alright now if not for the problem that if you leave the computer turned on for more than 10 minutes if freezes it doesn't Mather if you use it or not. ill do a full diagnostic the day after tomorrow and will try to see if the HDD or RAM test shows anything. any other ideas? :roleeyes

No, I'm fresh out. I've never had these problems with Windows, when I was using it. I'm not much of a Windows expert anymore though (if I ever was) so maybe somebody else knows more... :yesnod:

Sounds like hardware, but apart from that -- could be anything frankly :(

Though I'd check PSU first ;)
