Hey all, Ok a few weeks a go my computer started resetting when it got to the login page thing with windows. Sometimes it would come in a few seconds before, or a few seconds after but yea basically i noticed the phrase on the first screen "Secondary IDE Channel no 80 conducter cable installed" And when it miraculously finally boots up i get the your computer recovered from a serious error message, click details i get C:\DOCUME~1\JOHN~1.MIL\LOCALS~1\Temp\WERefda.dir00\Mini061209-24.dmp C:\DOCUME~1\JOHN~1.MIL\LOCALS~1\Temp\WERefda.dir00\sysdata.xml I did a bit of googling and decided that i needed to make sure all my ide cables are plugged in, done, replaced them, done, swapped ram around, done, removed one hard drive, done. Same old thing. Sometimes it doesnt even make it to the login screen just freezes on some black screen. Somethings up seeing as the main computer inside just needed a new mobo! I cant afford that sorta stuff so i suppose i just gotta figure this one out! Any pointers? Cheers.
