I've got two problems at this moment.

The first is I get the message "system32/drivers/NTFS.sys is corrupt" when I start my computer. It should be possible to repair it by using the XP-home-edition-cd. So the message and the help topics on the internet suggests

There I get the second problem.

When starting up the XP-home-edition-cd, it failed before reaching the first help screen. I get the message, "fastfat.sys is corrupt" or "tffsport.sys is corrupt" by trying it another time.

So I can't start my computer and I can't fix it.


please help. Thanks a lot!

Yes, about 6 months ago. It works oke til 3 weeks ago.

I removed the RAM and now it works again. The question is now: how can is use the RAM without problems? Do I have to change some settings? Which?

Something has changed recently...some sort of program was added that pushes your machine over the previous ram use--the ram has always been bad, but the bad memory address was not being used.

you could possible alter your ram settings to a slower speed, but that will not change the fact the ram is bad or incompatible with your pc (it may work in another pc if you can swap with a second machine, but unlikely)

Best bet, all ram has a "lifetime" warranty. Contact the manufacturer for a new stick
