Gooday all.My computer was working fine till I went to shut it down last night. It sent up a message which I think had the word kernel in it. Just a black screen with a warning sign. I had been partying with a few friends and had too much beer to worry about it then. I tried doing a xp repair install this am but it gets to a point then asks me for some driver. nvefdxp. I put the disc in the machine but it does not recognize it. I thought well stuff it, I have been going to give linux a run, and put the disc in but when I select to run that disc at start up it boots straight to windows and tells me no again.Any ideas. I ran the c cleaner yesterday and the superspywareblaster and the a squared thingy. Any clues. Thanks in advance. Regards, James.

Sorry, but I forgot to mention that I had done a system restore prior to this as I had been having a few funny things happening.

Hi James, if you have already done a system restore and you can not go back any further, I would be copying all the files I want to keep to a safe place as this may be terminal.

This could be hardware or software causing the problem, so....

1) Try this free memory tester: http://www.memtest86.com/ Create a boot disk and boot to it. Run the test for at least 2 or 3 passes (overnight is better).

2) Download a bootable image for the diagnostics on your hard drive from the manufacturer of your hard drive (usually free) and run it to check your hard drive.

3) Try a repair install of Windows. You may have to slipstream the nVidia chipset drivers into your installation CD (that's likely where the nvefdxp file is from). Here's instructions on how to do a repair install: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

You'll have to google for instructions on slipstreaming drivers.

Gooday all and thanks for the responses. Today I am back on line. It was a terminal problem. Luckily I had put all our photos onto discs a coupla days before the death. All is going well a t m. But I am not 100% certain it will stay that way. Thanks again. James.
