    Have you attempted to install it again? If not, I would try that first. It may have just been a bad install. If it fails a second time, download memtest86 and test your RAM. Also, download your hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic disc and check the health of the hard disk.

    Try those three things. Install again, test memory, test hard disk. If it still has issues we'll go from there.

    Sounds like you may want to start looking at a replacement PSU as well...
