    well , if you cant start it in safe mode , and it just restarts , then im afraid it format time , its what you get when you run beta testing software

    obviously that software has an issue with memory problem , or have you been experiencing virtual mem issues with other stuff

    there are a couple of restore / repair options available to you that you could try

    try f8 and boot from last good comfig

    there is a repair facility on the xp cd , but i have never used it

    cant realy be much more help than to suggest the format option mate

    edit , oh btw have you overclocked your comp , just thinking it may have something to do with the mem issue

    nah , just format and reinstall fresh xp mate , best bet , lol and stop playing beta stuff

    if it continues after the reinstall then its a hardware issue , like buggy ram , or bad psu or motherboard

    and to solve those virtual memory problems in the future do this:

    right click my computer>properties>click the 'advanced' tab>for performance click settings>click advanced>click change at the bottom.

    you will now be at a page looking like this:



    click custom size:
    • For initial Size type 300
    • For maximum Size also type 300
    now click set. then go through the long list of OK's, and restart.

    Why set it at 300MB?
    You obviously have 256MB but he has 512.
    The debate over pagefile size and whether Windows should play with it has been raging for years; when Windows was changing the size all the time, everyone was saying it shouldn't do that so you should change it to a constant size. That meant people argued over the actual size to set, but eventually it appeared knowledgable geeks found the most efficient use was at 2.5x the RAM installed... which is how XP handles it. The advantage of letting XP control the size is that if more is needed it'll up it and tell you about it. I have only seen this twice when I only had 128MB installed.
    He should either set it to 768MB, as Windows would, or leave Windows managing it.
