    I have Win ME and it did the exact same thing after I installed Photoshop 6 today. My advice is to get a REAL good boot disk, scan, look at registry, and all that...

    Hope it helps.

    Ok to solve this.. boot your computer in safe mode..(you know how.. press f8 on start up and select safemode from the menu).. I am sure that safe mode work properly since it does not load many drivers and files which might be causing the problem..

    Then go to start -> programs -> accessories -> system tools -> system restore


    Now when u click this.. click restore computer and next after that u get a calendar and the restore points.. Select the date when your computer was working fine and click restore.. And on the next boot up your computer should work fine.. But beware all the programs u installed after the date shown in the calendar will not be available when the computer restarts...

    How about re-formatting your drive and do a new clean install of your XP?

    Fountain and netboy how about you don't insult my inteligence. I can sleep through the instellation of XP. In fact I did. The shere fact that I was able to infom to the best of my knowlege th problem, and the fact that I gave the error code proves that I do know what I'm talking about.

    vasanth I chose safe mode and still my computer rebooted.

    civix, I'll try that

    hermit, that might be it.

    SS,

    You forgot the first rule of owning a MS OS, you must fully reinstall every 6(or 3) months to 2 years(maximum), otherwise things slowly(or quickly) degrade.

    seriously; check for bad HW.

    No.

    Hermit I think your right, My bloody room has been hoter then anywere else in the world. It's cool right now and It only took 2 boots to get up.

    Ok since my car just broke I have nearly no monney so I need the most inexpensive way to cool my computer. I think I only need to knock off 10 degres so any sugestions would be apprecated.

    put a small fan at the back of the computer, that's what i do, but not pointing at it though, becuase then it will send the heat right in, put it in a 90 deg angel with the fan in the back of the CPU, that drpos the temp by a lot, wee it did for me!
    oh i'm sorry! i didn;t realize my fist was rushing to meet ur face!

    or even better, do what I do:

    remove the covers! [the case] looks better this way.

    you can also do this to your toaster. just don't stare at it when it's on.
    think only with code.
    write only with source.

    Not the greatest idea - Keep in mind that the case was designed to use the airflow channeled with the case sides on.
