A friend of mine had the same problem It sounds like your hard drive is crashing What you'll want to do is to back up all important data that you have on your hard drive Then you are going to want to take it in for service It could be a CPU fan also.

As far as the difference between the 810e motherboard and the 815e motherboard, both of these are capable of supporting 66MHz, 100MHz, and 133MHz system buses allowing it to support Celeron, Pentium 111, Coppermine Pentium 111 processors The 810e offers Direct Accelerated Graphic Performance and Hardware Motion Compensation technology to improve DVD video Other features include Intel's Dynamic Video Memory Technology, which is used to enhance graphics performance and System Manageability Bus That is the chip that allows the chipset to be monitored by networking equipment.

The 815e features include intergrated AC97 audio controller and Direct AGP (Accelerated Graphic Performance) The Direct AGP can be upgraded to an improved 2-D and 3-D graphic performance through a Graphic Performance Accelerator card (GPA) The addition of an AGP 4X card is also supported.

Between the two I would personally choose the 815e.

Good luck on your hard drive and remember to back up important data first
