time to do some trouble shooting my friends. Make a note of your bios settings, and then remove all the add-in cards except the vid card from your pc, take out all except for one dimm, in fact a dimm from another computer would be better, and disconect everything expect the hd. Then try booting to windows, if the problems still there try switching the vid card for a differant one, or changing the drivers for it to the default vga ones. If the problems stops when you've cut down to the basic then put each component in one at a time to see if one of them starts making it happen again.
The number of times I've had a problem with my pc that I can't figure and I've done this, then ended up putting everything back in and the problem just being gone is just silly, damned gremlins

What kind of memory does your machine have? If it's generic, throw it in the trash. Generic memory is natorious for causing the problems you describe . . . . . I recently went through all my machines, removed all generic memory, replaced it with Crucial memory, and noticed a huge improvement in stability and reliability.

Not all generic memory is that bad, I use it and it's works great and the price was great at the time I got it, granted if I'd waited about 6 months I could have gotten crucial memory for even less but that would have meant waiting 6 months for an upgrade I wanted then at the price I could afford.
don't be to quick to dis generic memory

I'm not really disin' generic memory. Just stating that with the price of name brand memory being what it is, your better off to go for the good stuff and save yourself the head aches. Seriously, even my GF's PC got infused with some Crucial technology, and you know what, it's actually stable now, even though it's running Win98!

I agree, if I were buying memory now I would go for a brand name, but if you bought your memory when prices weren't so low and have generic stuff I still wouldn't recomend throwing it away and buying brand name stuff unless you know for sure it's the problems

$35 or less for lots and lots of memory is a cheap way to find out if the memory was the problem. I mean I can't even take my GF out on the town for $35! Now if your living on a student budget I can see your point, but for most people $35 is nothing.

Well two months ago with the price of memory and the price of gasoline being higher than they are right now, I'd probably have sided with you. This summer Gasoline(Petrol?) was around $2 a Gallon, and now its $1.25 a gallon. So I've got more puter money to play with

Ummm, is that like .40 pounds? or 40 pounds a month or something like that. It's like 1.45 bucks to the pound sterling (that is what you call it?) right? So like, how about some American costs

I thought the British economy was shifting to the euro-dollar or something. Sorry, for the ignorance, but I'm not really in to foreign economy.

I don't think it's that as much as their dislike of they're continental friends. Does Hundred Year's War ring a bell?

There's a huge debate a-brewin over this whole thing.

Basically, as of next year (some time in Feb, although its slightly different in each country) most of Europe will drop their national currencies and replace with the Euro (not officially called a euro dollar, but the sub-units are cents).

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (catchy) has elected to keep the pound for the moment. The government has said that if certain economic tests are met (inflation rates, exchange rates, growth rates etc. I think there are 6 tests in total, but they're all subjective) then they will hold a referendum to let "the people" choose (but not those people who are in jail, mental, living overseas etc).

There is a lot of public opposition to this at the moment because some politicians are setting this up as a big surrender to Europe and we'll lose all our sovereignty .. blah ..blah

This is irsquirt reporting from London for AOA Forums.
