It seems Delphi4 client/server version or Delphi5 trial version cannot run in my computer! No problem during the installation, but when I run the Delphi the screen will freeze before Delphi IDE appears, then the computer is dead. But the problem didn't occur with compact Delphi4 version.
To solve this problem, I upgraded the computer's RAM from 32M to 96M and even formated the hard disk then reinstall Win98 using different CDs. But neither of them does work.
Can someone solve this problem for me?
Thanks.

FAQ4602D.txt - Computer freezes at splash screen when Delphi is started.

   Category   :Install Issues
   Platform   :Windows 95 & 98
   Product    :Delphi4.x,   Delphi5.x,  

   Question:
   When I start Delphi I see the splash screen, then my system freezes.  
   How can I fix this?

   Answer:
   This is most likely a compatibility conflict with the video driver.  
   Borland tests its products against generic S3 drivers provided
   by Microsoft or S3 Inc.  Any drivers compliant with this standard
   should be okay.  Video drivers that do not fully comply with this
   standard may or may not function correctly with Delphi.

   To verify that you have a video driver issue try changing the hardware
   acceleration in the display properties to 'None'.  To do this go to
   Control PanelDisplaySettingsAdvanced PropertiesPerformance
   (a setting in the middle may work also).  
   Restart the computer and try opening Delphi.  
   If the problem is gone then you know it is a video driver issue.  

   If the system still freezes:
     In Windows 95 try starting in safe mode.
     In Windows 98, in the SYSTEM.INI file under the [display] section,
     add the line 'BusThrottle = 1' (no quotes).  Save the file, reboot
     and try running Delphi again.

   Here are some more permanent solutions:

   1.  Install the Delphi 4 service pack 3.  This offers a work-around by
        changing the way the component palette icon image list is loaded
        at startup.
   
   2.  Start Delphi with the "-ns" switch:  At the Run command line type
        "delphi32.exe" -ns.  Make sure the -ns is outside the quotes
        (It may be necessary to type the entire path to the delphi32.exe file
        inside the quotes).

   3.  Install a new video driver.  

   For more on video driver issues see
