I think John meant do you have any sort of cards in any mobo slots? If so, 
remove them if you can, and put them back one by one if that changes things.

If you have a spare HDD I'd try a fresh installation onto it. Sounds like the 
system on your present disk is corrupt, but if this is because of a previous 
problem or a current one it's hard to say for sure.
