OK, I am pulling my hair out here and just don't know what else to do. I had another thread going on midex 8 interface, thinking that may have been the cause of my puter not booting up properly (without the WXP disk and doing a chkdsk through 'r' repair).
I installed a 12v power adapter to the Midex 8 and still have boot up problems. Can get things going through WXP start-up disk (using repair and dskchk).
Have done all the 3-4 hour diagnostics (3 times) on this Seagate boot drive and absolutly no errors. Installed new 400 Mhz Ram (2 gig), new nvidia 5700 card. No luck, can't start windows without the WXP disk.
Using 2.8 GHz, P4p800 MOBO. Any other suggestions (did a fresh install of WXP - SP 1A as well.) What left is there to do? MOBO check?
Thanks in advance for any help anyone could be.
(note: when I do the chkdsk in recovery I always get 'found one or more errors'. I restart and puter works flawlessly all day. Start up the next morning with the same boot up woes. Going mad here - anyone at all have any further suggestions for me to try out. The projects are stacking up and I am concerned I will start to lose clients over this.)
