Hi everyone. My system hang-up soon after start up 1/3 minutes. I have cahnged the memory the graphic card seem to be working ok and I don't think it is anything to do with the CPU. I remember reading in pcadvisor about how a certain value appear/change in XP registly and couses this problem. there was also advise about how to deal with this problem unfortunately, I don't remember which issue of Pcadvisor.
can someone help please!! I am really desparate.

Hi Stalion yes i did b4 but now you don't get that chance as the system doesn't last long enough for me to do anything. strange but true. on Saterday it did work without any problem for a half the day all night. I tried stch it of just to find out if what i had done has worked. when i restarted the pc, i was now back to square one. up now it only last about a minute and the hang up.
