Frustrating reboot problem
need help please
i am currently helping a friend fix his computer which was working fine
apart from some missing drivers, we installed the latest ati drivers for his radeon 9600xt after reboot windows now wont start, the pc goes through post ok then just before the xp splash screen it will reboot itself.
it wont start in safe mode or last good settings eaither, stopping on mup.sys in safemode, we preformed the recovery option for xp which had no effect.
upon taking the hard disk out and trying it in another system it booted fine which leads me to belive its some sort of hardware problem
we replaced the graphics card with a geforce which had no effect
tried each stick of ram separate (safe mode boot then said ntfs.sys missing)
tried other hard drives, same problem
this is getting really annoying we are hoping it is not the mobo
amd 2800+ barton
2 x 512mb generic ram
radeon 9600xt graphics
120gb ide hard drive
