I have a desktop onto which I have installed a fresh copy of Windows ME (since that's what it came with) after formatting the hard drive. All went well, all drivers installed, but after a few seconds of moving the mouse around and opening a window or two, the whole thing freezes; mouse clicks and keyboard presses have no effect. I can only press the restart button on the case and the whole thing is repeated. I guess this suggests some hardware fault, but which one is the most likely cause??
I would say it's Overheating CPU. May need a better Fan. See how long it runs in Safe Mode. As it does not load all the Drivers. That may give you a clue as to if it may be the Graphics Driver that needs updating
