If your system is unstable, check your system files. The first thing to try is repairing these files using the System File Checker. Only do this if you have SP2 on your installation disc. Otherwise you will need to slipstream SP2 to the installation disc. Follow these steps (courtesy of Cahuffeur2)
Insert the Windows® XP CD in your drive. (Hold down the Shift Key to prevent it from starting.)
Go Start > Run ...in the box type in sfc /scannow …please take note of the space between the sfc and the /.
This is the System File Checker...it will scan all the Windows® core system files to ensure that they are in their respective correct places, and if not replace them from the CD.
During the scan you may be asked to Insert the CD, if this happens just go retry and let it do its thing.
One important point: While sfc is running, it is not advisable to do any other work, or have any browsers/programs running on the computer, until the scan is complete. (This process will generally take around 45-65 minutes to complete).
Once finished, remove the CD and reboot your machine...all should be "Normal" (hopefully). :grin:
I also have the same board, MSI K9N4-SLI F. I am running a AMD 5200 with OCZ 4gig of memory. I get this error everytime I load & it runs for atleast 2hrs before it reboots with this error. I switched out to new memory & its stops. I have 2 identical computers, with same boards, vidcards & memory, so i can test it with no problems. So here's the dilema, comp 1 has no problems, but comp 2 does. I switch memory from comp 1 to comp 2 & the error goes with the memory. I then downgrade memory on comp 1 to 2 kingston 1gig chips & still the error resumes but only after 24-36hrs of running. I've reset the bios to newest version 1.4 & set the memory voltages to the current settings for the memory chips. I can think of no other way of fixing it except to get a replacement on the 4gig OCZ memory chip & hope for the best.
