Please don't type in capitals, it's considfered 'shouting'.

Please state your Operating System and version (e.g., Win98 FE or SE), your amount of System RAM, you computer brand and age of the computer. Have you tested the BIOS' button battery?

The OS may be corrupted. Are you multi-booting?

You test that mainboard BIOS button battery by unplugging the power to the unit opening the case, grounding yourself by touching the frame or power supply and holding your feet still, carefully removing the battery by pressing the clip and taking the battery to Wal-Mart or another store that sells button batteries for watches and alarm clocks, the battery seller usually tests then not you although I have a tester I got from Radio Shack for $5. I still have Wal-mart test the batteries before I replace them.

Usually if a computer is over 2-3 years old it's a good idea to test replace that BIOS button battery.

32 Mb RAM is awfully small amount but will pass. It's kind of hard to find memory for a older machine sometimes. 128 Mb RAM is minimum
