Two weeks ago I purchased a new PC installed with Windows ME - AMD Athlon 1400/512MD RAM.
I copied across all my data from my old PC and installed all my software. However since then I have been
getting very frequent system crashes.What happens is that all of a sudden although the mouse still moves
the pointer around the screen I cannot click on anything and any programs running or downloading stop
working. I can reset the PC by hit CTRL/ALT/DEL several times.
The problem doesnt seem to follow any pattern
it can happen whilst surfing, whilst typing an email or simply running a virus check. In fact the only time it hasnt happpend is when playing a PC game
I have tried everything I can think of to rectify this problem.....
-Reduced graphic accelerator to very low
-Removed or stopped each piece of software installed
-Virus checked the system (Norton's with latest updates)
-Used Norton Utilities to check Windows/System fully
-Removed second hard drive
My last resort is to reinstall Windows, I just wondered if there was anything else I could do first.
