Disc 1 of 11 has ghost.exe.

My nephew built the machine. I've had it for almost three years. This is the first problem with it.
What info do you need?
Intel BIOS: BF86510A.86A.0077.P25
Intel Board: D865GLC
Nvidia (EVGA) Graphic: GeForce FX-5200

I still wonder if this has something to do with the file(s) that could not be uninstalled from the Lifecam VX-3000?
Someone else had a similar problem with a Logitech cam.

It's likely that, if you run the Ghost.exe, you'll restore the system to the date that the Ghost image was made (losing anything that you haven't backed up in the meantime).

I'd give your nephew a call to see if he's got an appropriate XP disk for you to use. You may be able to extract the needed info/programs from the Ghost image - but it'll take a bit of work.

If that's not possible, then the easiest thing to do would be to backup your important data - then run the Ghost routine. Then sit through the endless Windows Updates, then reinstall your programs.

If you plan on keeping the machine, you may want to make a Ghost image of the setup after you add all the updates, programs, etc. That'll make it easier to restore the next time that this happens.

This'll fix things if it's a software problem. Early on in the post, Albert speculated that this may be a hardware problem - and I'm speculating that right along with him.

The software fix (using Ghost.exe) will be easier than the hardware troubleshooting - and it'll be less expensive.

If the software fix doesn't work - then you can move onto troubleshooting the hardware. My "guess" is that it's a bad video card - but that's only a guess. You can also receive these symptoms from many other components inside the case.

You can run tests on your memory (free at: http://www.memtest86.com/ ) and on your hard drive (the SMART feature of this free utility: http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php ) but after that it's a matter of replacing parts (which is where the $'s or really good friends come in).

Thanks John, I'll run these over the weekend, when I have time.
EVGA does not have a utility to test their graphic cards.
I'll give you the results when I run it.

There's some generic software that'll give you a bit of info on your video card - but no real testing software that I've seen. With video cards I use an older card that I've got laying around to swap and test.
