About that CPU is umworkable Message, Thats a Hardware message and there could be many differnt things causing your computer to say that. Your Cmos Batter could almost be dead, your BIOS may need to be updated. Or another peice of hardware could be Faulty, (Dose it give any numbers or letters after the message? That might help find the problem) Updateing your bios is not hard but you will need a Floppy drive and you will have to get the bios update from the companys webpage. But its not a software problem its hardware cause it happens before windows load.
Im looking into that message you get when u try to loginto MSN so ill get back to you on that?
Let me know if you need any more help?

About that error code, This error is a general error and it says that msn may be having trouble with the server but if it happens all the time than thats not it. You may want to check the date and time of your computer to make sure that it is set to the correct time. You also may want to check your firewall to make sure that it allows MSN messnger to connected. Heres a few more steps that you may want to try to fix that error Message

The time and date could have gotton changed by a bad CMOS battery. Or there was a program that you may have installed that configured it to somthing differnt. Its happen to me a couple of times. If it happens frequently you may want to get a new CMOS battery.
(Make sure you check for spyware and viruses they also may be what changed your time.

Hope this helps.
