First of all, AWESOME laptop? Have any pictures?
Now, the problem should be either the board, CPU, RAM or HDD. To test the CPU, you can download a program called OCCT. you can find it on google. Here it is: http://www.short-media.com/download.php?d=456
All you need to do is install it and click test, not torture. (or the button other than torture and options, I forgot what it's called.)
To test the RAM, you can use a program called memtest86: http://www.memtest86.com/
That webpage should give you instructions. I don't have them because the program is integrated into my motherboard.
To test the hard drive, easy. just go to my computer, then right click your main hard drive (or the hdd with the windows folder in it), click properties, tools, the check disk. before checking the disk make sure you have both checkmarks marked. This will test your hard drive thoroughly. here are some graphical instructions on how to do this: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/u...ips/kbtip.mspx
If all these tests work, then it is your board, and you should backup your personal data, and return the laptop for a repair/replacement.
