    It is quite possible, that if you didn't do a clean Windows install you are getting this problem. When changing motherboards, a fresh Windows install is ALWAYS the most prudent thing.

    You could also be sure that you aren't having any RAM problems by running MEMTEST overnight -- http://www.memtest86.com/
