XP unreliable boot-up

  foxxxy 21:23 21 Nov 2005

Recently replaced my MB CPU and RAM. Did an "R" install with XP Pro and everything worked fine - for about 2 weeks. Now, sometimes the machine boots up straight away and other times cycles through FDD CD and HD with no result. Switch off power and re-try (sometimes three or four times) and BINGO everything is fine. No problems once booted up. Any thoughts??

Try the R install again but this time choose to fix the master boot record - at the recovery console prompt type
