Also, CPU FAN ERROR...it's probably saying that because you have no fan connected, as you have water cooling. Don't worry about that.
It probably corrupted the boot sequence on your Windows installation. See if you can do a repair install with your WINXP CD.
Otherwise, it's time to re-install Windows (unless somebody else has better advice).
I just switched on and first got the asus boot screen or whatever you call it,( which it never did before )and all the clock settings were back to default and in auto mode.
I'll give the repair a go. if not re-install, not got too much to loose seeing as it's new, and nothing I cant put back on. Luckily important stuff was on external HDD.
Cheeers for the help CrazeD
All went well. got two HDD so installed on the other drive and installing drivers etc from first drive. A chore but at least it's running.
