ME o/s crashes on internet dial up

  bfc_tangerine 16:36 16 Aug 2003

I am using windows ME and every time i try to dial up, my computer crashes. The only way to resolve this is to reboot before a dial up. Anyone else had this problem or know how to fix it? Thanks guys

Isp is bt openworld, hard drive formatted last weekend and ME re-installed but happened previously anyway, it has always happened when on ME but no problem with XP or 98se. Some other programs are crashing too but not all the time like dial up. I am using a 56k modem.
Machine specs are:
AMD Athlon XP 1800+ Authentic AMD 1529 Mhz processor, 512 DDR Ram, need any more info and thanks !
