i had this problem ,, Take note of what IRQ is timing out,

irq 14 ,15 = Hard Drive
this is what i had ,
my conlusion was that it was a Hard ware error of some sort or incompatibility.
I had a vx-pro mother board and an old IDE hard drive , infact i tried 3 different hard drives,
all were faulty believe it or not.

Well it is hard to say what your problem is because we dont know what irq is timeing out.
i suggest you look at your hardware, and bios settings


Hope this helps, food for thought.
