Unexplained lockups in windows 2k with p4 3.06 1gig of ram
Posted on 2003-10-24
This has me puzzled... I have a user that is running win2k prof. The computer will pause for no apparent reason. I have looked at the task manager to see if there was any process using any cpu time but nothing idle process other than the odd 5-10 cpu hit when the mouse is moved in rapid movements but thats it. I have ran performance monitor counters on the ram and cpu to see if anything bumps to a high value but nothing out of the ordinary. One of the only counters that does concern me though is page faults when the lockup occurs bumps up to 3000 or so. Is this possibly bad stick of ram there are two 512 sticks in the machine. I plan on taking one out and see if the user is able to use the machine and no lockups occur. Your thoughts and suggestions.
Thank-You in advance.
