View Full Version : Computer Locks Up

29-01-2002, 07:37 PM
I have a Packard Bell Celeron 600 with 128Mb RAM. When I click on My Computer or Explorer it freezes up. I can still send & receive e-mails and can get into Control Panel and Documents. Internet Explorer freezes as soon as I start typing an address in. I have tried recovering, running Fdisk & Reformating hard drive, changed the RAM, and tried a new hard disk. Scandisks come up error free. Any answers aout there greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Ron.

Important detail is missing from all that. What Operating System are you running and how up-to-date is it with all the fixes?

Update your Operating System and that may fix the problem.
