Default GG (-6085) and (-6088) Demon strikes again

I KEEP GETTING KNEE CAPPED as soon as i hit the PLAY button...

*** The operating system held off interrupts for too long. If this occurs frequently, try increasing the "H/W Buffer Size" in the Playback Engine panel. (-6088)

Had no issues when using Pro Tools 7.4 with the same session, same Firewire card, but different PC

Brand: DELL 9150
System: Microsoft Windows XP Proffesional SP3 Explorer 7.0
Computer: Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 3.40GHz 3.39 GHz, 2.00 GB of RAM
System Drive: 300GB Sata 7200rpm
Audio Drive: 80GB Ide 7200rpm
Hardware: Digi002 Rack

Ive tried the following:
* Unplug to different firewire ports on the Texas Firewire card and the 002
* Deactivating tracks and plugins (only a blank session works 100%)
* Tried all the different Buffer settings
* Tried 1 CPU and 2 CPUS
* Disabled On board sound from BIOS
* Disabed some Hyperthreading and Superchip thingo from BIOS
* No Raid
* Disabled Intel Network card
* Followed all of the Windows XP recommended tweaks
* Pro Tools is the only software installed other than Windows updates

I read somewhere about having to update some Duel CPU chip for the Dell but cant find more about this...

Also this machine was shipped as Media Edition but i reformatted it back to Windows XP, and their is an unknown device still in the Device manager which i believe is something related an Intel Chip for Media Edition but cant find more about this either...

The first thing i prob should have tested was to change my Audio drive and see if perhaps that hard drive is the problem
I also noticed in BIOS the drives are set to RAID/ ahci or RAID/ ata
Which to choose? default is RAID/ ahci
The drives are not configured for raid so im assuming RAID is not enabled

Any other suggestions would be appreciated

Thanks David D
