    Well I left my computer overnight to download something off BT..something ive done plenty of times before. I woke up this morning and it was frozen on my wallpaper..without any icons or anything.

    So I tried to restart it but it gets to the windows XP screen and it just stays there, the little bar moves, but it wont go past that screen.

    I can start it in safe mode..and Im currently in the process of transfering everything to my other computer incase the worse happens..but im just wondering.


    Where do I even start trouble shooting this?

    Instead of Safemode can you select Last known good configuration?

    Ill try that, after im done transfering goods to my dads buisness computer. Good thinking this time I had a folder on my desktop with 9 gigs worth of programs, patches, drivers and other stuff to transfer incase of a problem.

    Along with my 4 gigs of music..and luckely for my my mp3 players hd quit so im hoping i can get it all over before anything else happens.

    It would be better for the contents of that folder to be on another partition than your system partition.

    And have a backup.

    you know, this is a shot in the dark, but its worth a try, unhook everything you dont need, see if u get it to boot, you dont need floppy cd rom or extra perherepials...

    I dont have a floppy..just card reader. Im fucking pissed right now..this computer is only a month old and its already fucking up.

    e/
    I was wondering if this would help...I remember looking at temperatures about 2 weeks ago..my cpu would never go over 42C..now its sitting at 50C idle. NO OC at all.

    AM2 x2 4200.
    I turn the fan off and temps climb quick..within 15 seconds it was at 55 and rising..i quickly turned it back on.
