Every time i turn on my computer it loads up and turns off a few times before it starts properly. I eventually have to load it in the 'last good configuration'. When windows eventually loads it wants to send an error report but cant because apparently the report is corrupted. For a while it has been coming up with 'found new hardware' message when windows loads even though i havent added new hardware for ages, I dont know if that has anything to do with it. any ideas? :thumbsup:

Can you do a System Restore to a point prior to the current trouble?

Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore.

When this opens make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is chosen, and click on Next>.

The dates appearing in bold are the dates that you can restore to, click on the date that you want and then click Next> to start the System Restore. This may take a long time to complete, and when it is done it will restart your computer. When the computer restarts and you have logged on as the administrator a Restoration Complete page will appear, click on OK to complete the process.

If not, you may have to make a repair installation. Do you have the installation CD?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

After you have done the SR routine...it won't hurt to run chkdsk /r from the XP Recovery Console and also run sfc /scannow from within XP. Just in case file corruption is creating your situations.

How To Run CHKDSK In XP - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...b;en-us;Q315265 Follow the instructions for running chkdsk from My Computer/Explorer and check both options (Scan, Recover). It will run on next boot, allow it to run to completion.
