KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR....

My computer hasn't been working well lately and a lot of the time after startup I'll here the HD make noise as if it's starting up again. Then other times the CPU will be at 100% and only the mouse will work, until it freezes totally and I'll get the KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR.
I've swapped out the HD's, cables, RAM and it still seems to happen.

Are we talking about a bad MB?

Anyone have any ideas?

Also,
when the computer is rebooted, a lot of the time it won't detect one or both of the HD's and I end up getting a boot error.
Even after the computer has been rebooted when it has been going at 100% CPU, the light for the CPU will stay on constantly and will stay solid.

This computer seems to be unusable. The only time I could get it to start was when I removed a stick of RAM. But then the problems all started again about 5 min. after startup.

Test the HDD's in another machine or
I would boot to disk when it has the disks recognized and run a diagnostic on the HDD 1st to make sure the drives are ok.

If the drives test ok then you might need to flash the bios or the MB also could be bad.
If you have another PC I would test the RAM in it to rule that out.
