Thanks for the replies. I found a post on another forum where someone was running x64 XP and said they got this message after auto updates rebooted. That is what I think happened to mine. I used it for an hour or so this moring and rebooted it several times and it has been OK.
Is this a software issue or a hardware issue? One of the 80gb drives I have I bought used and never ran any tests on it. Is there a chance that it is one of my drives that is causing XP to be flakey?
It isn't too big a deal. I am planning to get Vista soon (as soon as MS sends it to me) If it keeps up, I may just install my XP 32bit. I wanted 64 for the RAM, but 2 of my sticks are being RMA's, so I only run 2gb .

hmmm, I had a no boot issue last week and it turned out to be one of my sticks of Ballistix. I have 2 sets, one old (double sided) and one new (single sided) It turned out to be one of the older sticks, so I have that set in the mail to crucial atm. I wonder if the other set is bad too? maybe a memtest is in order.
