Sorry, I couldn't quite follow what you were saying there.

I've reformatted via F10. D partition actually kept all the files that were there before. I'll look back at that post with the links.

I still have the spots on the screen (and the monitor flashing on & off . I've run Malwarebytes & avast (but no boot scan.....I learned my lesson). After I finish installing xp updates, I'll download the nvidia driver and see what happens. 

Will mention if I find anything wormy.

yr first post on mar 9.

but what counts is more is how you think the system is running
hook all yr peripherals up as you want to.

1Tb USB and a good running system would to come out of this with
essexboy is good with all those malware sorts of things

Getting through that update thing with xp after recovery is an ordeal, just bit by bit I guess

If you've got an nVidia graphics card, that could be cause yr screen

Just a quick update... I got everything running and almost reinstalled all my progs. Got Avast back on and I'm staying away from the booty scan.

Big thanks to essexboy and co. Now if I can figure out how to un-raid my computer, all will be well.
