Laptop freezes

  Paul M 18:14 13 Dec 2008

Whenever I try to copy multiple photo images in Windows Explorer to paste them elsewhere, holding down shift and clicking on each of the files to highlight them, my laptop freezes and I have to re-boot. Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be please?

I have a Patriot laptop with Via C3 1.2 GHz processor and 256 Mb ram; O.S. is Windows XP (SP3)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Suggest upping the RAM would help.
256MB running XP is very low & this could be your problem!

Thanks for that - I'll look into adding extra ram.
