Well, everytime I start my computer the past 2 days, it says that my C:\Windows\system32\system file is corrupted or missing. I think the file is a devisce driver. Anyway, I have to boot from my Windows XP CD and it repairs it. But it does it all over again the next time I fire up my computer. Anyone else have a similar problem that might know how to fix this?
Seriously? I don't consider 1125 on a 1000 too high. And I haven't heard of anyone else having this problem with their rigs OCed by like 200 MHz or more.
The theory should be easy enough to test. Just back down your speed to default and reboot. The problem will either show up (and it's NOT the O/C) or go away (the O/C IS the problem).

Otherwise, you might have a bad sector on your HD to which the driver keeps getting written. Though XP should detect bad sectors automatically (and then mark it as such), you may want to try a disk integrity utility to see if there are any problems.
you could possibly have a bad stick of memory (or one that's going bad)...or it could be your o/c...even though you only o/c'ed a little, some chips still are not stable at those speeds...
