To start up in Safe Mode, hold down the shift key and then startyour Mac. Safe Mode takes a while, so don’t be alarmed when you don’tsee the desktop right away. While you’re waiting, the operating systemis verifying the directory structure of your startup volume, andrepairing it, if necessary. It will also delete some of the startupcaches that may also be preventing your Mac from starting successfully.
Once the desktop appears, you can access and run disk utility http://macs.about.com/od/applications/ss/firstaid.htm tool just as you normally would. When First Aid is finished, restart your Mac normally.
Please note that not all applications and OS X features will workwhen you boot into Safe Mode. You should use this startup mode only fortroubleshooting and not for running day-to-day applications.
Boot Into Single User Mode Start up your Mac and immediately hold down the command key plus theletter ‘s’ key (command + s). Your Mac will start up in a specialenvironment that looks like an old-fashioned command line interface(because that’s exactly what it is).
At the command line prompt, type the following:
/sbin/fsck –fyPress return or enter after you type the above line. Fsck will startand display status messages about your startup disk. When it finallyfinishes (this can take a while), you will see one of two messages. Thefirst indicates that no problems were found.
** The volume xxxx appears to be OK.The second message indicates that problems were encountered and fsck attempted to correct the errors on your hard drive.

Can Drivers-Utilities reinstall disc be used to stop Endless Loop Start and Repair found root error Registry is Corrupted. Repair Action Registry Roll Back successful.


Doubtful... You'll need to use a OS Install disc to repair System/Registry files. If you have the System Install Disc, put it in your optical drive while your PC is already up and running. When the Auto-Run prompts, allow it to run, but rather than starting a fresh install, select the "Repair" option... It should then scan your system & settings and replace any missing or broken files. However, if your system can't start at all, place the OS Install disc into your optical drive while it has power then shut down your system. Wait 10 seconds and restart. Boot from the CD and then select the "Repair" option as mentioned.
Good Luck on fixing your system :-D

Try the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Check for a failing hard drive
Trying booting from the Mac OS X install disc. insert the Mac OS X install disc. press the start button, while holding down the "C" key on the keyboard
Once you are running from the disc. go to Disk Utilities select the hard drive click the "repair permissions" button at the bottom.
If you get any red errors listed or it doesn't seem to finish repairing the permissions you have a failing hard drive and it will need to be replaced.
If the repair permissions finishes without any problems. You will have to reinstall the operating system.

Ok only 64 bit memory and 40 stream processors. Put your settings on 800x600 and all medium settings. Too bad, but you should also have 2 gigs of memmory to run the game really well.

I still get some lag every once in a while but I have 2 gigs of memory, 1950 pro and a dual core processor. You dont need dual core but at least a 3ghz single core.

let me know if this helps. send me an email if you have to as well and I dont mind helping you out in further detail with your system specs and what I think you could use to play some of the more current vid games.
