After having lot's of error's problems playing games i decided to do a re-format, to see if i can start again without any problem's...

Well now they have got worse.

After the re-install it started to restart in windows, tried to get SP1 installed. Halfway through in crashed. any how i got it in, and sometime it just resarts itself 5 or 6 times before it loads properly...

I was getting errors appear...

Anyohw now i am getting annoyed....

Now i am sttuck as to what to do...

Recently i installedf an ASrock k7tv4-4x board with XP2600 chip TB core with 512mb DDR

Before this i had a ECS K7S5A board with 1024mb SD 133 with a XP1700 strapped on.

The hard drive is a western and digital 80gb drive...

Also Aopen CD-RW and un-branded DVD drive.

The graphics card is a GF4 Ti, sound blaster live for the sound and realtek NIC.

Before the re-format i had a lot of problems with crashing in games, mainly Battlefield 1942 click here

Anyone got a clue?

I have done re-format's before with XP Pro and never had a problem only recently since the new board have i experienced problem's.....

Did you install the motherboard drivers... have you tried updating then to the latest VIA Hyperion drivers click here . Have you checked the bios version of the motherboard click here as it looks like the origonal one had memory compatability problems fixed with version 1.4 or higher.

now updated to 1.7 booted first time no prob's....

Gonna keep this open in case it was luck!

If you connected to the internet to install SP1 you may have been infected by the Blaster worm Pilch.

i installed an AV program before i went on the net and made it update as soon as i got on....

Plus when i get blaster i get an extra program on takbar which is when i know i am infected..

But all is well now i hope :D

Cheer's Andy! BVW!

Good Chrimbo guy's, ill have a JD 'n' Coke for ya!
