    Default i dont know what is wrong with my rig!!!!!

    a few weeks ago, my coputer started bluescreening and sometimes, booting from cold, would say an OS file missing. i thought it was my ram, since it was declared faulty by memtest. (it didnt help running it at a lower latency than rated) so i thought it was memory, and duly got new, corsair ram - specs in sig. however, it is still doing the same thing. ive clocked everything back to default, and it still doesnt work (well ok the graphics get overclocked automatically when entering a 3d app)

    please could someone tell me what it could be?

    it sounds like the OS install it corrupted. try assuming your using xp a repair install should work. if not a full reformat may be needed

    Try lowering your overclock, I got that error when I was screwing around with high HTT(over 350) and low(er) multipliers. If it is an unstable overclock you could also solve it by raising the voltage to the CPU and maybe even your RAM.

    yeah - i did lower speeds to default, but it still did it. the file not found ended with nls and it said i could repair it with the xp cd. i tried, but found nothing that sounded as if it would mend it. on another drift, FEAR has started to play terribly, using a 1.5gb page file, even though i have 1gb ram. its nearly impossible to play at all. considering it ran fine before the ram upgrade, what could be wrong? other games run fine, like quake4. the ram all works and is detected by utilities fine.

    Check your RAM with Memtest86, let it run through a few times if there are errors then your problems are most likely RAM related.

    aha - sorted the cold boot problems. i have a second 40gb disk ide that was running slave on primary. it was a noisy git so i used it to back up stuff then pulled the power connector, but not the ide cable. as soon as i yanked both, the pc ran fine and have had no probs since. i write this in case anyone else has my prob.
