System
Tbird 1.4, 80 g and 60 Gig Hd 3x256M ram

For some reason now my sytem will not warm boot..

i.e if I update say the video driver .. and prompt for restart ..

the screen will display some system file missing or noskernel.exe missing?

and following that I SWITCH OFF the PC for 2 minutes .. and it will startup to XP no probem?

Is this the MB issue ?

I have swap the memory around

have tried it with 1 x 256M, 2 x 256M ram with each one and it still give the same probelm..

I thought it was the heat issue .. I put a delta fan for the heatsink.... not helping either?

BTW if I cold boot to XP ... I can play any game for hours without lockout.. and the system is very stable ?


I have also re-installed XP fresh
still no warm boot ?

anyone experience such strange encounter before ?


I have the feeling tis the MB issue!

Exactlt as posted..

MY PC will not warm boot..
e.g if I install an application, say a firewall software

and prompt for restart..and if I press the restart TAB..

the system will either show a black screen or some missing files..

the missing changes all the times..

then I switch off the PC .. wait for 2 minutes.

it will just startup to XP as normal

the original dsipaly missing files does not show or ablack screen which I expect to happen?

In the past I just put in the XP CD and repair it..
Now this is entirely different.

Yes I thought it was trojan or virus too..

.. I have formatted the partition and re-installed XP countless times already..

BTW this happen even to freshly installed XP!


I am certain the culprit is the motherboard .. just that I am not willing to fork out some $ for a new MB ,, just after Xmas.. :)

it might be just a reisitor or condenser going bad!
