Windows ME Freezing problem.

  Wrighty 23:11 09 Jul 2003

Hi there,

I have a problem with ME which is becoming more frequent. Sometimes on start up the computer screen freeze's this happens quite alot, but when the system finally loads I find programmes just freeze and I have to restart PC. This happens on the Internet as well.

I have a Athlon 1.2GB Processor.

Anyone had any problems like this????
I would appreciate any idea's to try.

Many thanks


ok, lets cut to the chase, instal winXP.

Can you close your other thread by putting a tick in the box so all the posted are in one thread.

Have you tried new Graphic's drivers as this can be a problem, with it locking up.

I would recommend a good clean out, have you tried EasyCleaner? click here

while you're saving the money for xp, try making sure everything is as clean as possible, hardware and software. run defrag and scandisk (if they will) and clean out your registry with jv16powertools, as woodchip suggests make sure all your drivers are up to date.

inside the box make sure your memory modules are all firmly seated and blow out all the dust and muck with compressed air to make sure nothing is overheating. with ME its best not to have too many programs running all at once so eliminate anything thats not totally nessesecary like AIroboform or stuff like that.
