Sometimes when I turn on the PC, it goes straight to the BIOS and tells me that I have installed a new processor, usually I just putt the right processor speed and off it goes. Yesterday, that happened, I quit teh BIOS and CPUZ reported a AMD 2500 instead of a 2800, eventually I got windows reporting the correct CPU and settings but when I rebooted, it wouldn't go past a WIndows menu, Safe Mode, LAst know config and all that, I tried them all and I just went back to the same screen time and time again. Had to load a saved image of teh OS, working fine now. What do you think the problem could be??

AMD Athlon™ XP 2800+
ASUS A7V8X-X ACPI BIOS Revision 1013
512 DDR
Microsoft Windows XP Workstation Service Pack 2 (Build 2600)

Could be a problem with the SP2, make sure that you run a spyware before installing SP2..

Thanks, seems OK now, but this is a problem that seldom occurs, and it first popped up before I installed the SP2
