Hello everyone, Alright, I wouldn't normally post this in a new thread, but it is a problem that is "solved" but has become a consistent problem on the same computer. I built a new computer and installed windows XP Pro on it. Here are the specs: ASARock 939Dual-SATA2 MB AMD Athlon64 3500+ CPU WesterDigital 7200 WD800JD 80Gb HDD Aspire ATX-AS520W PSU NEC ND-3550A Drive 1Gig Corsair DDR-400 Ram It worked fine for a few days, then I got this blue screen that said I have a system error and that I am missing a file or it is corrupt c:\windows\system32\config\system. Now, this was fine because I thought I knew the answer to this problem, which is incidentally the answer to another recent problem posted on this board, it can be found here: http://www.digitalwebcast.com/articles/viewarticle.jsp?id=8658-0 I performed the operation, and again, it was all well and good for a few days. Then I got the same problem again. I used the same solution to make a fix. Then it happened again. So, my question is what's the problem? Do I have a hardware problem? I even used two different WinXp install discs to solve this problem on different occasions since I only needed the recovery console and I thought that the original disc might have become damaged or something... Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
