    if uve wiped ur hd and everything, i assume u have done a format, i reckon its hardware related becoz after formatting ur hd, everything is basically wiped.

    Try reloading the chipset drivers also, and make sure DMA is enabled on all your HDDs. Also, make sure your video card's power header is plugged in firmly!

    you core clock aint at the right speed, depending what manufacturer made your card eg powercooler, His etc.. your core clock should be around 620mhz, your card could possibly be faulty, get an overclocking tool like riviatuner (i think its for ATi and Nvidia) and overclock the core to 620mhz as 500mhz just aint right. Also 40 degrees idle for your 3700+ cpu, what cooler are you using, i use stock cooler, i am running at 2.8ghz and my idle temp is 32 degrees, its worth tidying the inside of your case if its messy and putting some decent thermal paste on the CPU.

    check your heatsink/fan on your graphics card and cpu to see if there secured properly, and install all new drivers, including amd drivers.
