I'm on my 4th format. I decided to format, after having the computer for a year and recently getting 9600xt and another stick of ram. I'm a big gamer. The format went well, and I had everything installed again drivers,programs, the lot. I was able to restart and more. Then later on in the night after getting out of a utk3 game. I decided to restart. I got to the winxp login screen and a box appeared saying "delyaed write failure" plus alot of stuff it could not save. It would not let me login, or even enter safe mode.. I formatted again, after installing everything for 2nd time. It did it again in a similar style. I did it again..Now..im on my 4th install. I have instaled only the basics. My ati drivers,My via chipset drivers, plus directx 9. Everything seems fine so far, but even that's not for certain. Any ideas? suggestions?
