PC that still hangs alot!
Posted on 2004-08-24
I wrote about this and an other problem some time before. The other problem is solved but i still got this one.
The computer is a PC with Win 2000 Pro as OS.
When I'm working with the computer like with Photoshop that are pretty demanding it uses to hang after a couple of minutes. But I can, through a twisted TP, exchange files with the computer but it doesn't responds to any input at all. I can't press CTRL+ALT+DELETE or move the mouse. Caps lock doesn't respond either. At hanging point I have had the taskmanager showing. At the processes tab the 3 processes at the top sorted at CPU is:
System Idle Process CPU:92 Mem:16K
Photoshp.exe CPU:06 Mem:31,4K
CSRSS.exe CPU:02 Mem:1,4K
I have updated the BIOS to the latest version and run servicepack 4 without any improvement.
I have also defrag it many times.
To day a upgraded my Ram to 256 without any improvment.
So if any one got any idea what to do please let me know!!!
Is there any swap memory that I can increase and get the same result like buying more Ram?
Is there any log files that is created that perhaps can give a clue?
Does it exist any software that can monitor what happens perhaps?
Any suggestion at all is appricated!
Give svar so I can award you!
BTW 40 p is all I got, sorry for that!
