Can't get to the threads in this existing problem! Compaq Presario 4506, 200mhz, 48mb memory, Goldstar 16x cd-rom replaced with 56x Mercury cd-rom freezes PC running Win98SE, updated via Windows update!
"Thanks for response. PC freezes with or without CD. CD gets read, then feezes midway. Correction, the CD-ROM is Bigfoot 16x. Delay reaching your thread till I enabled accept all cookies."
Hi Softee. please keep posting here in the forum. other members can see your posting and offer more help. replying here also bumps you up to the top of the queue so you will find a solution faster hopefully.
i think you could do with some more ram maybe (just looked at your specs above)
Correction Bigfoot 16x cd-rom (original Presario drive) when replaced with 56x Mercury drive freezes PC with or without cd inserted. Cd is sometimes read, then freezes pc midway. Thanks for the response.
