Thanks. I just ran into another problem. Everytime I open any application, I receive the errors shown below. I shut down, and reboot, and now things seem to work again. Although internet explore constantly has to close and restore windows. I will do what you said and change the msconfig boot setting and reboot, and see how things work.

My computer ran fine for a day, and today, it booted up to a black screen, and did nothing for 30 minutes, so I reset it. It ran startup repair, and restored to an earlier point in time. I went back into msconfig, and the boot settings were still set to 4 cores, but max memory was set to 0? I changed it to 4096, which is how much ram I have and restarted. I just checked it, and it has changed to 256? Why is it doing this, and is this an issue? Thanks.

Before I changed it last time, the original setup was 4 cores, and max memory was unchecked with 2048.

memory

that is kinda odd I would remove 2 gigs of your ram and see if things level out

Was gone all day, came back and tried to start my computer. No go. Just went to system repair. Then it says startup repair failed, because startupRepairOffline, and there is a corrupt registry. I shut down, removed 2gigs, and tried it again. Same problem. I am wondering if this is a hardware issue. The computer worked fine last night. I wasn't even home today, came back and it doesn't work.

Looked up the details,
"Bugcheck 74. Parameters = 0x2.....
Registry is corrupt."

Then I did system restore, which completely successfully. Booted up, and registry is corrupt again.

I don't really know what to do from here. Motherboard? RAM? Processor? Power supply?

The computer is brand new, so I have trouble seeing why I should have any driver issues with the hardware. I guess I will give 32bit a shot, and see if it works. Thanks for all your time, computersplus.
