    Have you been inside the PC or moved it around where the IDE cable(s) have become unseated? :?:

            OK, maybe a bit harsh, but there's nothing like a clean install feeling

              Well, to tell you the full story:

              After that, my reg got messed up, then my IRQ, so I had to reformatte. -_-

              It was probably a virus or something...

              I haven't messed with my computer in 2 months. I only installed new RAM. that was it..

                Ok Fair enough
                Reinstall was ur best bet.

                must admit i use Drive Image and it is great.
                I just install everything OS, Office and other programs, tweaks etc
                Then just save a disk image.

                if it all goes south i just back-up data like doc's and email and restore the disk image.
                No reinstall just replace the whole shooting match with a known good version.
                Too easy.

                Drive Image is freely available and value for money
                (i got mine sort of free - ssshhh don't tell) hehehe

                cheers
