    Safe Mode boots Windows with a very limited/basic "environment".
    It won't run any of your auto Startup programs, and only uses default drivers, etc.
    If the problem is caused by a Startup program, driver, etc. that normal Startup uses, this could be a easy/quick way to to determine that.

    I like to try Safe Mode before doing a Clean Boot to see how things work...
    To me it's a quick/easy test and does not require any changes...
    If Safe Mode doesn't have the problem, and Normal Startup does, then I do a Clean Boot and try and find the culprit.

    Process of elimination ! Your sata II drive should have no issues plugged into a sata III header. If the drive is the culprit and beginning to talk you may want to back up all data to a new sata III drive and play it safe?

    we may be wrong here people. just plugged my spare sata in about 4 hours ago. when booting it wanted to do a dskchk. i let it do its thing and all seems to be working. can a disk check fix this problem? or is it just one of those problems that just magically goes away?

    You should have used revo uninstaller or cccleaner or something else to uninstall it other than Add/Remove. Unless you did. Because registery entries could stay.

    i now know exactly what it is and there is no doubt in my mind. AMD don't supply thermal paste with they processors, instead they apply it to the heatsink at the factory to make for easier installation... THEY DIDNT PUT ENOUGH ON!! looked in the bios and i was getting at idle 64degreesC! i took the heatsink off because i thought maybe it didn't seat correctly as that sometiumes can happen and this is how you find out. when i took it off i looked t the processor and there was spots when the paste hadnt got to. to was all around the perimeter of the chip but in the centre it was a bit six's and seven's. so I NEED THERMAL PASTE!

    could this of caused any damage to the processor? i don't think it would of done but you guys will know better than me.
