Hi, i lost you on the chat/repair. anyway as i indicated, this is a known issue with outlook 97/2000 emails with attachment file winmail.dat you might want to read more about it at http://www.gpc.edu/~jbenson/resource/winmail.htm. Patch/repair/utility to read/open can be found at http://www.kopf.com.br/winmail/ or http://www.eolsoft.com/freeware/winmail_opener/. Hoe this works out for you. Please let me know how things turn up. Regards

You cannot open a data file this is only read by a programme or the operating system, but what may have happened is that you have been sent a file for which you do not have a programme for it to open with and windows has use the.dat as default. If you know who sent it and what file it is suppost to be, ask them what file it is eg a picture or video file and use one of your own programmes to open it using the right click and 'open with' method.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan
is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or
to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including
the leads from your

and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error if this fails to fix the problem
another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time placing to much strain on the CPU also you might not have enough RAM random access memory to check what is running when your computer is running scroll to the bottom toolbar right click select task manager applications and processes if you see something you dont need running select end now to check how much ram you have click start right click on my computer select properties you will see all of your computers details another way to check how much RAM you have click start all programs accessories system tools system imformation all of your computers imformation will be there try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive this will schedule on a restart don
