Hello,

I unplugged my computer about a week ago and everything was working fine. Today I plugged it back in and starting it and now Im getting only to the XP loading screen and then I get a BSOD and then it restarts. The one time that it actually made it through and everything loaded, I noticed that the fan for I believe the Northbridge controller wasn't working and the heatsink got very hot. So I turned off the computer right away as soon as I noticed this. I got the fan back to working again, but at the same time the error came back and xp wont boot normally. It will boot up in safe mode.

This is obviously the FIRST problem you must solve. Otherwise, if you run that computer without that fan working, you will undoubtedly suffer serious damage. Especially if the BIOS setup is not configured to shutdown on a given temp.

Secondly the error code could be the same matter - overheat.

That error is usually BAD physical ram or bad hardware ie: a graphics, sound, network card etc.
HOWEVER all of these could easily go back to the same problem.

Is there a minidump if so attach it please.

Its fixed, I guess? Its booting normal now again and the Northbridge fan is working. What I did was boot in safemode. disabled a couple start up programs and checked error checking to run on next boot up for drive C. I don't think either of those were the problem and error checking didn't find anything. Before I booted I disabled the parallel port and serial port in the Bios thinking that maybe there is a IRQ or memory range conflict. On that boot after error-checking didn't find anything, I noticed that the memory check stopped looping like it was before when I got the error (BSOD & restart loop). It is booting and starting up normal now and I tried it several times. So like you were saying, I think it was caused by some hardware problem or hardware conflict. Maybe even the serial port is dead or something, I didn't try enabling those again yet. The only problem I'm having now is that my external fan speed control doesn't work at all anymore and some blue LED lights don't work. I also forgot to mention the my 1394 Net adapter had a conflict in the Device Manager so I uninstalled it earlier today and now its back without any conflicts. That one time when it booted and the Northbridge fan wasn't working, the alarm was going off. If I waited any longer to shut the computer down it probably would of fried everything and caused serious damage like you said. So checking the bios for auto shut down for that and if so setting it to a lower temp is definitely the next step. Theres no minidump in the folder. Thank you very much for the advice and your help with this.
