Sad BIOS Update did NOT work

Ok, so I updated my BIOS first to 1008 and then to 1011. Same problem of system freezing as before.

What's left to try now?

I tried looking for the Intel Chipset Driver Utility v5.02, but could not find it on the Asus website. Also, is the driver update the same for the E version of the motherboard?

What would cause the computer to freeze when idle?? Intensive CPU tests and RAM tests don't seem to find any problems. Is there any other probable hardware cause? How would I test the motherboar itself? (But wouldn't a motherboard problem show up at more times than just during system being idle?)

Frankly, I'm beginning to get genuinly frustrated here. My old 800Mhz Gateway was slow, but at least it didn't freeze all the time!
