Any help would be appreciated

- unplug any peripherals particularly USB connections.

- try safe-mode (press F8 at start up)

If safe mode works, run msconfig and disable most things there, particularly anything new.

If possible remove ALL non-essential cards ie Modem/Network/Souncards etc etc.
Best of luck and regards

PS Also unplug/remove any ZIP drives, CD Copier / DVD drives, but leave one CD drive connected.....
