When i got there, there was safe mode, safe mode w/ networking, and safe mode w/ command prompt. It didn't work the first few times trying safe mode but then it worked. I went to roll back the driver and it said something like this:

Magnum/Xper128/X99/Xpert2000

No driver files have been backed up for this device.
If you are having problems with this device you should view the Troubleshooter information. Would you like to launch the Troubleshooter?

And btw, when in safe mode, when i tried runing msconfig, the box popped up and stayed there. I was able to delete somethings unneeded at startup, but now it pops up for a second and dissappers again.

any suggestions on what to do now?

Try repairing your installation of Windows XP using your Windows XP CD.

i have no idea on how to do so...
and also, a friend of mine says that a reason to the frequent freezing/crashing of the computer is that the air flow or fan stuff(something to do with that) cannot cool the cpu or something efficiently. can that be true?
