I would give replacing the cmos battery a try if that didnt work then I would probably try a different hard drive..not sure either of these are the right answer so keep checking back and you may have some other answers before you try it...course the battery is relatively cheap to replace anyway and wont hurt

Hi,

If WinXP keeps dissapearing, I would test the hardware and scan for a virus.

1. In WinXP (once working), run "chkdsk /r" (may schedule it for next reboot, so reboot)
2. Then test memory, read HOW TO - Test your system memory?
3. Scan for virus, check out http://housecall.trendmicro.com for free online virus scan.
