    A while ago I began getting messages after logging in saying the following:

    "One of the files containing the system's Registry data had to be recovered by use of a log or alternate copy. The recovery was successful."

    I tried to fix the problem by cleaning the registry and using TuneUp's registry defrag. Neither solved the problem and soon after, the PC began to restart itself with no warning. As soon as this happened I turned off the restarting thing to get the BSOD. The BSOD message said it was a registry error and advised to disable to hardware/uninstall new software (neither software or hardware has been changed for a long time). This BSOD got more regular and sometimes happened even before windows was fully loaded.

    After a while I decided to try changing the ram as I read on a forum that someone else getting the original error message had fixed it by replacing their ram. After doing so the computer failed to find the OS so changed the ram back and have same problem. So now when I turn on it just says "Boot failure. Insert system disc" (or something like that, I'm sure you know the message I mean). Would really appreciate some help. Thanks in advance.

    Problem solved. Reset cmos and played around with the settings and it fixed the problem. Now working faster than ever! Jon.
