I'd gladly give all points for a solution to this.
I have a HP Pavilion 5330 running win98.
My computer has started locking up. i can get out of the lockup by ctrl alt del. But this only works some of the time. It seems to be getting worse. I upgraded to win98SE
but the lockups still continue. I even put the recovery disk in and started all over from scratch, cause I thought it was a software prob.........but after starting over twice, I am led to believe it is hardware....although I have no idea where to start???
