My self biuld SOMETIMES when i turn it on says windows has encountered an error on start up, would you like to start in safe mode, last known configuration or normal.

sometimes it will start in last know configuration fine, or i have to boot into safe mode and the reboot it to get it to work.

When the machine is in windows it performs brilliant on CS and BF2.

Heres its specs:

3500+ venice core
Msi K8N Neo4-F click here
1gb corsair ram
click here
160gb samsung sata hard drive
philips dvd writer
x700 GPU

Any ideas on how to stop this stuppid boot message? (and its done it ever scince the system was setup)

Have you considered sfc /scannow to check your Windows files?.

  matt1234 16:47 20 Jul 2005

nope, ill will try it if you tell me how to get them

If I was you, I would remove all but basic hardware, see how it goes and the put things back one by one and try each before fitting the next item also stop any programs starting at boot that does not need to start in MSCONFIG startup tab

Start/Run type sfc /scannow, notice the space between c and /, have your Windows disk to hand and insert it when asked.

Have you tried running the CPU at a lower FSB speed

  matt1234 17:02 20 Jul 2005

nope i dnt know much about the bios.

BUT when i built the machine i borrowed my mates 3700+ then i bought my own but my budget restricted me to the 3500+ could that of caused it?

did you check on the amd site for the correct bios settings for your 3500+. This will tell you the multipliers etc to set to.

  matt1234 18:44 20 Jul 2005

yes i did and i downloaded the cpu info software

and it says: Current CPU speed 2246Mhz Part is possibly overclocked

is this normal or is it really OC as i swear ive never OC my computer yet
