WINDOWS XP WON'T BOOT AFTER INSTALLING SP2 - A BIOS UPDATE MAY BE NECESSARY
Installing Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 on a PC with a "Prescott" CPU and certain chip sets can cause it to fail to reboot completely. The problem can be solved with a workaround or a BIOS update.

Problem
Depending on the chipset, motherboard manufacturer, BIOS version, and CPU, installing Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 can result in an unbootable computer system. The problem is generally associated with Intel "Prescott" CPUs and its chipsets, but not every such combination will cause a problem. As of this writing, motherboards exhibiting the behavior include:
  • Albatron PX865 PE Pro
  • Shuttle SB61G2
  • Jetway i875P
  • Soyo P4I865P
  • Aopen AX4SG Max
  • Asus P4P800-E deluxe
  • Abit IS7-V
  • Foxconn 865A01-G-6EKRS
Technically speaking, the problem revolves around the machine's BIOS not installing a production level microcode update. To check whether the BIOS is at the correct level, download the Intel Processor Frequency ID utility. The microcode version is identified by this utility as CPU Revision, which should equal at least 8.

Is anyone else having a problem replying to comments within the e-mail notifications?

I'm seeing a much smaller text box than usual and the reply doesn't go anywhere. of course this could be a problem with:-
Live Journal
Hotmail (my e-mail provider)
my company firewall / proxy server

I can check if it's the last one this evening but the rest will stay the same.

Any of you getting problems or is it that the world is just getting at me personally?

Peace
peter
