Thanks ellas,
I have just tried you sugestion but the same messages re-appear

The only way to get the pc running is by leaving it off for an hour and then booting up, but when i re-boot it for any reason i get the errors back again

Yes. I have a total of five fans in the system including the CPU fan and they are all working fine

Have you tried running ME over it's self

I have and it fails at the setup of plug and play / detecting device settings.

I have also tried setting win98se but it also failed at the same point
