Default unexpected crashes on newly installed rig

Sorry if this has been solved before I have serched a couple things and couldent find an answer to my question.
I recently had to rebuild my main rig and since then if I try to install a program that is bigger than 800 MB my computer crashes, or if I try in plug in any lind of USB storage device it freezes. any suggestions for this problem?

my rig is:
Motherboard : ASRock 4CoreDual-VSTA
CPU : DualCore Intel Core 2 Duo E4300, 2400 MHz (9 x 267)
RAM: 2X Crucial 1 GB DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM
Video card : NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS (320 MB)
OS : XP SP3 (but the problem happened on SP1 and SP2)
if I need to post more information I will, but my guess is that it will have something to do with what I have posted

Did you just do fresh install of your OS, or did you have to swap out any components?

Just a fresh install, I didn't have any of these problems before having to rebuild.

I'd try loading the defaults in your BIOS and maybe even updating it if possible. Might fix things and if not shouldn't do any harm.

Ok, I had already tried updating the BIOS, and I just set it back to default. well the USB problem went away, I'm testing if installing large programs still crashes it.
EDIT that seems to have fixed it, now I want to know what exactly caused the problem.
also thank you for your quick responses to my problem.
