I've a very big problem, please help. My computer pending chaotically without visible reason or message when trying to read/write to SATA hard disc. No message appears, just screen becomes dark or smoothen, turning to 640*480 resolution.
Sometimes it could be inspired by TV tuner power on or by turning web flash video to full screen. Rarely "unknown hard error" message appears in tray without any file link (i.e. I'm sure that system files are correct), system "works" but no I/O available. BSOD never appears. In LINUX situation the same.

Computer has this problem since it was built not by me, but in shop they could do nothing. I found that after re-sticking SATA and IDE DATA and Power cable problem could disappear for about 1 week - 1 month, after changing cables no problem for 2 or 3 month...

Oh, could anyone help me to fix this problem completely? Please!!!

Motherboard: ESC
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 2800+
RAM: 2*512 DDR
HDD1: WD 80 GB SATA
HDD2: Samsung 256 GB SATA
HDD3: Samsung 512 GB IDE
Optical: NEC DVD+-RW IDE
TV: Easy Capture Card TV+FM
Video: on board VIA, 64MB with 3D

Hm, I hope no overclocking but I'm not so sure...

Oh it's difficult, I could not see something like "Primary Video Controller" or so on in my BIOS at all...
