this has happeded over 30 times now since my pc upgrade and the other way to solve it is to format my hardrive and reinstall windows xp pro, its gettin really anoying as sometimes this my happen a few times a day. the other thing is that i have 2 sticks off ddr ram, one is a kingston ddr 333mhz fsb and the other is Elixer ddr 400mhz fsb, could this be a problem as i have taken out the 400 mhz one and now the same thing still happened but nows its a different error.

You will have to post the exact error message. We cannot see your screen.

I had a similar problem recently, getting blue screens & different errors and codes each time. I even got it when trying to do Windows XP "repair"! (After restoring with Drive Image)
In the end it tuned out to be a stick of DDR memory had gone down. I have four sticks of memory and took the lot out and then ran on only one, replacing it with another until I found the culprit.

The 3200+ is a 200[400]fsb cpu so memory ideally should be PC3200 have you tried just running the 400 stick on its own.
Its best whereever possible to use the same type/brand of memory especially in nforce2 boards.
You dont say what your power supply is

I can not cure the problem with my board with the nvidia chipset i can only use one memory stick .my previous giga byte board had no problems // re member the old boards with four memory slots they had the same troubles with memory sticks .some motherboard manuals give the make of memory and size it would take i do not like the double memory boards at all

Have you tried running the pc with just the pc3200(400) ddr as alot of mobo's don't like two difference makes of ram especially ones with different speeds.

did you try the MS troubleshooting links above?

and as Rayuk above,what rating of psu do you have?

Guess would be the memory. I've had loadsa problems and it turned out to be the memory brand not compatible with the motherboard. you say you've taken out the 400 DDR one, well leave that one in and take out the 333 DDR one and see what happens.

Hope it works soon.
