maybe it could be a memory problem. i have set the paging file to give me between 10g and 11g extra? running 64 bit tho so this shouldn't be a problem. i have loads of extra space on the hard drive!

thanks for all your help!
Your quite welcome.

Good to hear your machine is POSTting okay.

About that memory.....
10 to 11g is a mite high, according to this: Change the size of virtual memory Your min should be 3.03g, and your max 9g. Why don't you let windows handle it on auto for a while to see if it makes a difference? Do you game?

If it was me I'd be tempted to pull a side cover to clean out the cobwebs, and also pull the memory sticks, check the contacts for dirt, then re-seat them.
Remember how they go back in, and also remember 'bout the static, and grounding yourself before you go in!
Most slots today have those clips on the ends that you have to push back, remember to put them back if you get in there.

More on memory see links at bottom of post #2 here:
virtual memory managment

EDIT:

I have seen X64 run on 1g, 2 was better 3 okay, 4, and 5 better still, 6 on up cozy......I have 6
