Fresh install of XP SP3 on fresh formatted hd on this new mb. so I don't think that's it.
It's an ASUS P5G41-M LECSM MOBO.
INTEL CORE2DUO 3GIG E8400 PROCESSOR
ASUS EN8400GS SILENT VIDEO CARD
SEAGATE 160GB HARD DRIVE
CORSAIR 2GB DDR2 MEMORY
GENERIC DVD PLAYER
GATEWAY 19" CRT MONITOR
(This is parts I got from MWAVE.com mostly, I always cheap out and look for cheap components. )
I increased the paging file range, max was previously 3gb.
I had Norton Utilities installed, but removed it. I heard some of it may remain and there is a prog you can get to really get rid of it. Not sure about this.

How do I do this? In the bios?
All my crazy stupid troubleshooting lead to this. One day the pc wouldn't boot and I thought it was the monitor. Ended up replacing:
power supply, video card, mobo; just found out it was the one memory stick almost by accident.
Damn machine has been quirky since new rebuild, crashes, error messages.
Thanks for the replies!

I know! I put away FAR CRY - couldn't get past the last level even though I knew what to do! I'm just not fast enough!
