Today, when i turned on my computer i got a message on a black screen saying: INVALID BOOT.INI FILE, BOOTING FROM C:/WINDOWS. Then my computer loaded normally. Is this a problem. Could it be connected with a "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" message.

Thanks.,

I know this is no help but maybe some comfort in knowing you are not alone. I get that same message on one of my PCs frequently at start, yet it seems to be functioning fine. I'm a newbie so I've always ignored it and had to press F1 or restart but I've never had any problems with it or freezeups. I want to keep watching and see what the big boys have to say about this.

once you get into windows can you do start > run > msconfig
once that opens up click on the boot.ini tab copy the contents of that window with your next post (crunch...feel free to watch but in the interest of not confusing the monkey...please start your own thread on the issue)

Should look something like this....

[boot loader]
timeout=30
defult=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Mircrosoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn
