Every time I booted my system, a warning window opened stating the there was an error
reading the system registry. Scanreg runs and tells me the registry has been repaired.
I reformatted & reinstalled windows & kept getting the same thing.
I replaced the hard drive, installed windows, updated my drivers and the loop is back again.
Someone posted this exact problem on Techrepublic.com. It turned out the problem was a
defective Pentium Chip.
So, I replaced my chip. I?m still having trouble. (after the system warms up)
I removed the memory chips & swapped them one at a time ? didn?t help.
When I looked for a registry backup file in sysbckup folder the only cab is rgbad.cab.
I found the rgbad.cab in the sysbckup folder and deleted it. Now it won?t go into windows
at all. I get a message that some .vxd file is missing and I need to re-install windows.
I started to reinstall windows and upon running scandisk, and there are lots of corrupted
files in my windows directory.
After I replaced the CPU. the problem didn?t happen until after the system had been on a
whole, so I imagine it could be an overheating problem, but my CPU fan and power supply fan
seem to be running fine.
