And what's in the EVENT VIEWER after a crash start?
Here's the hardware:
Home built PC
2.66 Pentium Intel CPU
Asus P4PE Motheboard
Western Digital 200 GB hard drive
ATI Radeon All in Wonder 8500
1 GB of Corsair 2700 ram
Soundblaster Audigy 2 sound card
Windows XP SP1
Here's the issue:
At times when I turn my PC on, XP won't boot up. I get the Bios screen, the XP LOGO, the list of components, & then it starts back over. Sometimes it will give me the screen to start in safe mode or last known good configuration. Sometimes it will allow me to use last known good configuration & sometimes I have to go to safe mode & sometimes I have to use system restore & go to an earlier restore point. Most of the time, it boots up fine, but I wonder if XP might be getting corrupted or a possible hardware problem. I have also noticed that some of my applications seem to take longer to come up & shut down.
I am on a home network, have the usual antivirus software, adaware, spysweeper, etc.
Would appreciate any tips & help. Don't want my system to crash. I do have everything backed up. Just trying to figure out where to go next.
