    Not a whole lot to go on. ntfs.sys errors are usually related to a bad hard drive, but you already ran some tests.

    PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA is usually related to bad memory. You said you ran 3 passes of Memtest86+, though.

    So you're saying that you didn't install SP1 and updates? Or was your Win7DVD already at SP1?

    Did you check the motherboard for bad caps yet?

    It's still strange that the hard drive was not detected earlier. It's fishy.

    So the Win7 install complete without error from start to finish? Did you at least install SP1?

    What else did you do after the install completed? Did you install drivers?

    You still didn't answer the other questions.

    Why don't you reformat and start new? If you have trouble with a new install, then it's either your ram, or bad sectors on your hard drive. You have to do diagnostics tests on both first or you are never going to pin down your problem.

    ive ran numerous test and dont know why but they all passed and nothing came up thats what so weird,ive done memtest i used the ubcd,diagnostics, they all came back with nothing, i think it might be time to take it to someone,maybe it is a badcap like Midknyte said i just didnt see anything that looked bad to me, doesnt mean there is or isnt a badcap on the motherboard

    Again, did the install complete cleanly? If you had to restart the installation, except for the normal reboot, then start over with a clean format. Allow the Windows setup to format the drive.

    If the DVD doesn't say SP1, then you should download it separately. The first thing I do is install the service packs.
