View Full Version : System lock-ups

28-07-2003, 03:04 PM
My sons computer has a problem. I built him a system with what I thought was plenty of resorces. P-4 processor, 512 mb. of DDR, 7200 rpm HD, Intel 845 motherboard, ect. The problem is, his system has a tendency to lock-up once in a while. He has lots of games and related software installed, but this system seems to have had this problem since I first installed the Windows second edition OS. Are there any aplications out there, or any general strategies that can resolve ocasional lock-up problems?

Too vague

The problem(s) may have existed before "the Windows second edition OS".

Hardware tests, software tests, hardware compatibility checks - could be anything.

Realistically, without hands-on checking, the chances of rectifying such a vague problem is remote.
