I have had no end of problems with my computer, I have changed every piece of hardware yet my problems still persist, the only thing I haven't changed is the motherboard now. I have changed the motherboard around 3 or 4 times before when I was having different problems (Between a gigabyte P41 and an Asus P45 board.. the Asus board is currently in the computer)and each time I have had to reinstall windows as it would not be able to boot, I assume this is some kind of driver conflict.
Is there ANY way to get around this problem?
I will be changing the motherboard to a gigabyte P35 board.
Thanks a bunch

Your issues probably are stemming from this type of issue. Do yourself a favor, if you change the motherboard, reformat your hard drive.
