It could easily be the board or perhap a weak cap in the supply itself. When first starting up a system the drives are tested and the initial demand for power is greatest then. But seeing a board with bad caps or bad bios chip wouldn't be anything new. The first board in a new build here ran well for the first 3 days and took a nose dive to doa land.

If it is having Disc Read Errors it could be many things. The Hard Drive could be dying fast. Could be a bad cable from the hard drive to the mobo. Could be a bad connection for hte IDE connector on the mobo.

If it is anything with the mobo you iwll have to get a new one. Since the warrenty has run out a few months ago should have asked earlier and we could have told you to have gotten it repaired while it still was under warrenty.

That might help. Reset the CMOS and BIOS and see if that does anything. If you are continuing to get these issues, the only thing i can think of is a bad mobo batch. Get a new mobo.

You may have bad sectors on the drive itself if no other problem is found. You can have the disk check utitlity run on the next startup with the "chkdsk /f" command at the Run prompt right off of the Start menu or accessories>command prompt.

Two good references with all varions for the switch are seen at Microsoft Corporation and at John Barnett's Windows XP Help and Support for XP.

For Vista go to How to Use Check Disk in Windows Vista — MAXIMUMpcguides - Windows Vista help and how-to guides that help you get the most out of your computer

Go test your memory for errors too.

That's another thing that can't be ruled out. Hopefully it will turn out to be software related while nothing should be overlooked.
