    Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:

    There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

    Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a '+' does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer". .

    Well as you do not want to rebuild/reinstall Windows you can try doing some real diagnostics. The Ultimate Boot CD is free and available here

    http://download.cnet.com/Ultimate-Boot-CD/3000-2130_4-51584.html

    Start with a Memory Test use the Ultimate Boot CD and boot off it then go to Memory and select the highest version of Mem Test and run that.

    If there are any errors shown and you have more than 1 Ram Module Fitted remove all but 1 RAM Module and retest. If it passes rerun the test but with the other RAM Module Fitted. If that passes then you have a Timing Issue with the RAM Modules and while both are OK they are not Matched and are causing these issues.

    For further help post to the Q&A.
