Ok so heres the run down and i hope im putting this in the right place... a few weeks ago my computer randomly shut off while i wasnt even on it. The computer immediatly booted back up and i just thought nothing of it. Come to find out my computer suffered some damage from the random shut down.. since the incident my speakers have been crackeling and my CPU usage has been JUMPING around like no tomorrow. i recently just installed 4x gigs of PC 6400 memory weather that makes any difference. im also experiencing LONG boot ups.. it seams that my computer doesnt recognize my keyboard and mouse quick enough for me to even pull up bios and do a fresh install.. Which is what i really want to do cause i hate the **** on my computer.. if we can just fix it by doing this i will be quite happy but since the keyboard doesnt work at boot up i cant get into bios and boot from disk.. with that being said for some reason it wont let me do a refomat to a restore point.. it begins and then jsut stops, loads back up, and says it failed... that kinda makes me feel that it might be viral.. but im not really sure.. i also tried updating my audio drivers which are Realtek and that did nothing. My friends believe its my CPU but im not to sure.. and i ran a disc check and it said everything was fine after taking 2 1/2 days to finish running. i am quite puzzeld if anyone can help plz assist me in my troubles.. i hope i gave enough info

This is a little more of what my computer looks like..

CPU: 2.20 Gig AMD Athelon X2 4200
BIOS: Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00 PG 06/13/2006
Mem: 5x gigs of PC6400
HDD: ST3320620AS [Hard drive] (320.07 GB)

I also ran Hijack this to show a little more information..

Re: Ok Plz Hlp me out this is driving me crazy!

Hello & welcome to TSF ,

what version of windows are you running ?

i know that you are running XP but is it 32 bit or 64 bit ?

you see 32 bit will only reconnize 4 gigs of ram / memory max

& 64 bit will handel up to 10 gigs of ram memory

now 32 bit will do all kinds of crazy things when you have to much ram installed

now what type of keyboard & mouse are you using (USB) ? wireless?

if so then hook up a ps/2 corded keyboard & mouse for the usb drivers do not load until the hard drive gets loaded for that is where the drivers are installed to unless your system is designed to boot with motherboard usb drivers to wich will be built onto the motherboard
