I have strange problem, may be some one can guide me on to this. I have a P2, 400 MHz old machine running windows xp service pack2. It performed well according to its capacity till now. Now something strange is happening, once suddenly when i started windows it showed to have loaded only the basic hardware and software components. Copy option was available but paste option was in the gray. Net connection was visible only on the shortcut and that too did not work, and properties showed its target area to be in the grey shades. No sound was audible with any media player but system device manager showed every thing to be working fine. Tried to create new internet connection but the connect internet manually option appeared in the grey shade and not available. Could not understand any reason. Ran antivirus AVG and disk scan both showed every thing to be perfectly fine. Tried to repair windows with installer but after rebooting and setup showed fatal error again and again, frustrated reinstalled whole windows again and it all started perfectly but again after normal turn off and restarting windows same problem again appeared. Again reformated and reinstalled windows and everything started well but again at restart same problem. I have formated and reinstalled windows xp many a times but i just i can't understand the problem. I am an old computer user from 80286 family and DOS 4 and have good know how and usually almost always handle problems by myself but this time i am really stuck. Could you guys help me understand this???
