Over the last 3 months on the 5th or 6th I lose my operating system. When I bootup I receive a black screen with the following "System failure unable to dectect Operating System". I restore my hard drive to its original out of the box status. I use Norton Antivirus and have scanned both in normal and safe mode for virus'. Any knowledge or assist would be greatly helpful. Thanks

Hi,
Clean install your O/S (Format Hard Drive) this will get rid of all the build up of junk on your system save all your inportant files as all the hard drive will be clean, check that your system is compatible for XP (HCT) on M/S web site.

I would just like to add that you have a utility that will clean up your hard drive, internet files, and other things. Some of these programs may be usefull to you and may not cost anything. A good resource is www.webattack.com. I have been been using them for years and they are reliable. It is free to access their site. As davidacox said that you should definately do a format and clean install. Check out if your hardware is functioning properly and have the latest driver updates.
