My system has started to give me this message about every other time I boot up, although I have installed nothing new lately. Any ideas?

P3 650@761 on ABIT BE6 r2, 256M RAM, G400 32m DH oem, 6.10 drivers, Voodoo II in SLI, Aureal SQ2500, 30G Maxtor DMax 7200 ATA 66, 300W PS

Is there anything odd under system properties/devices after a boot into safe mode.

I ended up with the problem after a botched driver install for my soundcard... it would redetect the legacy soundblaster device ever boot... It turned out it never completely installed and thus never stuck http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

I could be way off... but it gives you a place to start. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

Let me try that. I did disable dos support for my sound card round about the time this started. Maybe.........

Yes, check anything you installed or disabled as of lately (can be up to 4 weeks ago), and especially try to remember when your last crash was.

If Windows was installing something during a crash, it is possible that this setup message pops up way later than after the first reboot.

How many times a week do you reboot? http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Actually, I have not had a crash for months...system is really stable.

It's my home system, so I typically boot up once, shut down once every day.

Did you check the registry for faults?
