hi all! :rock: for the past 9 months i've had a problem with my System Registry, even after 2 attempts of formatting my pc i still get the problems. the problem occurs when i restart my computer and i get the following message in a windows error box (something like this..) 'error accessing the System Registry, windows will restart to fix the problem for you' and then when windows loads again everything that was installed before the last successful restart will not run unless re-installed. :confused:

after finding out some information for myself from the following link..;EN-US;q186909& i still haven't solved the problem. can u help? so far i've tried one of the troubleshooting tips from the site which was to change the amount of RAM used by windows which proved inconclusive because the amount that they specified to change it to was not enough to run my system! i suppose i was a bit dumb to try to run battlefield on about 16MB RAM lol! heres my system specs if the help..

WIndows 98 (first edition) AMD Athlon XP 1500+ 256 MB RAM X-Wave 7100 sound card G-Force 4 MX 440 64MB graphics ...i know my baby is fallin behind everyone else now :(

Hi carlscoolbeetles,

Please don't post multiple threads on the same subject it wil get them all shut down.

Here is what I think, you have a a hardware problem, either with the memory you are currently using, your Hard Drive, or some BIOS setting that affects them. Try going itno the BIOS and resetting your BIOS to "Failsafe Defaults" (most motherboards have this or the same with slightly different wording). If that doesn't work try different memory, and if that still fails then your hard drive may be having problems, but this is almost cretainly a hardware problem, not software.

Good luck
