    i tried event viewer but it doesnt say whats the problem... all i can see is it the startup event no shutdown or error event there
    Honestly, I am not even sure this sounds like a software problem to me... it very well be a hardware problem, IE: a failing Hard Drive or power supply.

    I would check the most basic things first, such as using a volt meter on your power supply and make sure it is getting proper voltage.

    Next step would be to verify that your Hard Drive is not dying a slow and painful death.

    Running Memtest couldn't hurt either.

    Hmmm,

    I don't think that your problem is/was hardware related, as that message is generally associated with firmware (driver) problems.

    There are two basic ways of testing the power supply.

    1. Physically testing the outputs with a multimeter.
    2. Using some sort of "PC Health" type software that monitors inputs to the MoBo.

    To check your HDD go to the manufacturer's site and download their diagnostic software.
