Corrupt Files???

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Alright. I was at my arents doing a outine system cleaning...they had been having heat poblems, so i cleaned out the dust, put AS5 on the Processor, the cipset, and the GPU. The proc is a XP 2000+ T-Bred. I do not know what the Board is, except that it s a MATX ASUS board. It has 768 Megs of PC2100 ram. Tha is all the pertinent info.

It posts, bt won;t o into windows regulalrly....it will lock up going in, or it will cause almost arifacting on the loading screen and a lock up....like the splash screen has been put in a blender. Do i simply need to do a repair nstall? Or are these symptoms of a greter problem.

this is where I would start, check all temps through the bios ( assuming you can get in ) if all seems well there I would do a repair with the windows cd if you have xp do not press f2 or try to do it with recovery console keep going until it says you have another version of windows installed and asks if you want to try to repair by pressing R. So press R and it will continue kinda like a normal clean install except that it reinstalls all your programs and whatnots. Note: sometimes drivers must be reloaded

Have you made sure that you have reset C-mos ( you just never know..try it lol ) or have you checked your g-card is set into its socket fully and secured. If not sounds like windows corruped MBR or boot files which can be repaired with a XP disk.

Well, now i thankfully got in and was able to DL some driers and (thank God) CPUZ and was abe to get the board model number. It's and ASUS A7N266-VM.

Well..i got some stuff done, but th computer just shut down, and when i try to start up again, it didn;t post, just made alternating high and low tones..

I'm trying to downoad the manual so i can get the sound codes....but i hope it isn;t screwed up....i didn;t do antihng out of the ordinary eithr....

All temps are within (or were when i could get into ios) acceptable range....34 C idle....

I hoped my parents compy isn;t screwed...

i wondered if it was a hardware based problem as you said you had corruptions on the screen.
