Works perfectly! After 12 months, no crashes, no freezes!

Flabbergasted, also for the HP Pavilion m7557c Media Center the motherboard is ASUS A8M2N-LA (NodusM)!
Are you sure about the chipset? According to the HP website, the HP Pavilion Desktop PC uses chipset GeForce 6150 LE.
My ASUS A8N-E uses chipset NVIDIA nForce 4 Ultra. Maybe the maker of the motherboard isn't so important as the chipset involved.
