I reformatted (NTFS) and installed fresh copy of win2k pro on cpq presario 5000 (PIII 500 megahertz). Service pack 4, all MS updates, downloaded Intel 82810 chipset (video) drivers latest version yet unit locks when I do various browsing tasks.  Any ideas?  I've seen some HP's that simply do not support win2k. hope that is not the case here.

I probablly do 10 of these a week.

thanks, Paul...

hey there is something about lockup on my computer's BIOS  OR CMOS

check in those

clear it if you want to but record data amounts for HDDs unless you can access them easily and look and see there numbers for sectors heads cylinders and total size to make sure it is close to it
