Windows or Hardware?
Posted on 2004-08-28
I have just built my own PC for the first time.
Everything works – mostly. I have a few horrible problems
P4 2.8Ghz, 533 FSB
AOpen Mother board MX533V
Asus Graphics car and Soundblaster sound car with 2.1 speakers.
DVD CD writer/ reader
It is fairly quick.
I installed XP Pro. I get the following problems. Occasionally I cannot change user accounts, unless I log off one account and lod onto the other.
When I am connected to my wireless LAN I do not always get the video screen icons in the bottom right hand corner, yet I can see the entire network and connect to the internet.
He other day I could not even reboot. I got to the login screen and it just switched off and went round the whole cycle again and again and again…….. I could not start in Safe Mode as it just stuck at ‘starting windows’ for ½ hour. I had to reinstall XP and things started to work again, except for the above.
I have NIS and regularly run a virus check.
There may be more than one problem bnut I don know what they are is there any way to track what it is.
