    its either your RAM or hardware conflict. there are several things you can do:

    1. google and download Memtest to check memory
    2.open your case and reseat your RAM modules
    3. disconnect all your USB devices and uninstall their drivers if they have one.
    4.uninstall your ATi catalsyt drivers and download and install the lastest.

    Hi see it will start in safe mode..tap F8 at startup.

    System restore.
    Tap f8 while your system is starting up.
    Choose safe mode with command prompt.
    Log on as admin.
    At command prompt type
    %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
