"With the clean boot option, if you have problems then you can restart in safe mode and reset the start back to normal by reversing the steps"
Oh that's what I wanted to hear, that there is a way out and the computer isn't stuck with that setting.
"When you used CC did you use the registry clean option ?"
Yes I did occasionally, but on the 2 days the BSODs occurred - no.
"By around 2001, RDRAM was no longer supported by any mainstream computing architecture"
Thanks for that info. I'm totally aware that an older computer will struggle with modern technology and I know that the ram is way too low. I explained to phillpower2 that I tried to upgrade it, but the PC World technician said he couldn't because it was Rambus and they didn't stock it. He said it would be expensive and might be difficult to find.
What's needed is a new computer, but I can't buy one at present.
If I knew how to I would be wiping the disk clean and doing a fresh os installation right now.
On the one hand I'm thinking this computer is all I have, I would be miserable without it. It's fragile, I can't take risks unless I have to......unless there is a serious problem and I have no other choice.
Yesterday's STOP error was the first I've had for a while, so at present the BSOD issue is not serious.
If they recur more frequently then of course I will have to investigate further as to the cause.
But on the other hand I am a perfectionist and determined by nature, so I want to get to the bottom of it, don't like letting it lie. Same with the SFC errors, want to put that right too. Want to make my computer as good as I possibly can.
