plz i need help people... i have been running winxp without no problems at all (except slowdowns ;)) with my old pentium 3 450, 392 RAM and riva tnt 2 ultra gfx card... now i just changed my motherboard to put a 1600+ athlon xp in it. i also put a geforce 2 ti 64mb ddr and a 40gb ibm deskstar in it.
and oh my god, after the whole day that it took to set it up (i'm no expert ;)). i just can't get to run smooth with internet explorer 6.

hell winxp and all my gamez work great but i just can't get ie6 to download shit... when i do, the comp resets on its own :( :mad:

Go to RUN and type sfc

and click ok


SFC = system file checker

Hope that helps

I would STRONGLY, emphasis on STRONGLY recommend you format & reinstall XP. NT products do NOT like having hardware like the motherboard swapped like that. There are devices installed which an NT product (meaning NT/2k/xp) finds, installs and forgets about, never reverifying it's the proper device or driver. If your IE problem is not related to that, chances are something else will. So do a backup, format and reinstall. At the VERY least, do a fresh install over the existing one.

did you format the drive before you reinstalled if not might have some leftovers

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
