i have windows ME, recently hard-drive seems to need time to warm up, otherwise it just freezes up, then it has to be re-started with hard boot. is ok after that. now it will only go into Safe Mode with message of "WARNING. WINDOWS HAS DETECTED A REGISTRY/CONFIGURATION ERROR. USE SCANREG TO CORRECT ERROR" the after harddrive is scanned, sz there is a driver detected & goes looking to do its thing. later message sz, and i didn't write this down, but a SUREG something, something is missing. any ideas?

My first thought is the hard disk is failing, you might need to get another drive and replace the old one. You can keep the old one and possibly use it as a slave for storage, or at least it may let you get your stuff off the drive. Have you tried running scandisk to check for errors? I would try running a thorough scan (possibly in safe mode) to see if there are any bad sectors on the drive.

I have to say that i agree with thepheonicks. It sounds like a failing HD and you should run scandisk to check for errors.

I've had this problem a few times. It was usually a bad (or too slow) memory stick. The hard drive sends the correct data, but it is held incorrectly in memory. If you've recently added memory, take it out and see what happens. If you have more than one stick, try running with just one, then with the other one.
