I have a problem with my PC where everytime I start it, it does not remember changes previously made. For example :

1. Firefox - all previously saved bookmarks have gone
2. Firefox - starts each time as if it were the first time
3. Programs installed lose their desktop icons and i have to start them from the folders.
4. Media Player starts each time as if it had just been installed
5. the PC seems to boot up each time as if it was the first time, after reinstalling the operating system.

Its not the CMOS battery becasue the date and time does not reset.

The PC is running XP with SP2, 1gb ram,250gb HD,Athlon 2ghz,

Any idea's ?.

Welcome to TSG....

CMOS batteries are cheap I would suggest replacing this first just to be safe.

When the motherboard was replace did the driver disk for the motherboard drivers get used to install all of the special drivers for the motherboard like chipset, buss, network, video, audio etc.?
