    Maybe if you'd asked a question in a straightforward manner instead of simply posting "Windows is such a piece of..." then I'd be more sympathetic. If Windows is such a piece of **** then please, by all means use another OS.

    did you read the article i linked you to...completely?
    it has four parts and what you explain is related to just first part. i would say follow all parts.

    [b]Delete the thread if you want too, I frankly don't give a ****.
    who said anything related to deletion? people are trying to help you here. if you can't talk in a better way, then rather than we delete the thread, why don't you stop logging in?
    i understand that you are in a problem and quite frustrated too, but thats no way of talking. i hope you understand!

    No I didn't read the article, havn't had time to do much as of late. And I did find my problem, due to oc'ng or not I have no clue, as the system WAS stable... But I did toast the motherboard (long story), so it's now making a nice nornament on the wall while I await my new one ... Problem was with the southbridge chipset... and it looks like the mook who was working on a machine next to mine, tossed some screws into the bottom of my case for lack of better place to put 'em I suppose, and forgot to remove one, but anyway, screw musta made contact someplace, because there is a big problem with the southbridge.

    And it was PersianImmortal who said he was tempted to delete the thread. I don't take that as helpful thus my response. My appologies to others who were reading this thread; and yes I do understand.

    Wiggo, no there was no UPS on the system at the time (was at the office, not at home).

    Brownouts can also cause file corruption and hardware failure.

    As you can see, my temptation was because the thread seemed like a whinge thread unrelated to an actual Windows-related problem. As I suspected it's a hardware problem, but I'm sorry to hear that you lost your mobo because of it. I recently had problems with my old mobo which caused Windows to suddenly bluescreen a lot and hence I got a new system.

    Windows XP is actually quite a stable OS, but people expect a lot from it under the pressures of overclocking and modification. If you have the time, read my two XP Guides (in stickies at the top of this forum) when you do a new XP install and you'll find things running smoothly for you.
