Hi all,

I recently had to re-install WIn XP without SP1 or SP2 as these versions would cause my PC to freeze everytime i logged into windows.

This standard XP Pro edition is working fine, but i realised my BIOS dates back to 07/31/02. Please find my Mainboard details bleow (obtained using Bios Wizard):
