Help! my PC is crashing slowly!!
Posted on 2005-05-09
My own PC is coming to an early demise and I am hoping someone can assist me in reviving it for a few more months??!!
It is an AMD machince, kind of old (I use it hard core) lets see..
MSI K7T 266 PRO MB
Athlon XP 1.2 CPU
1G 266 DDR RAM
60G hard drive (slow seek times filled to 85% capacity)
Windows XP pro SP2
floppy (That is no longer recognized)
Network printer (won't work, error says no printer spool installed??)
None of my USB ports are working
My on board sound is gone (reinstalled all available drivers last night, didn't work)
I ran recovery console and fixed windows (yeah, right...didn't fix anything)
I ran HIjack this and got nothing nasty
ran CWShredder, 1 found and removed
Norton SYstemworks 2005 quit working after I ran recovery console and freezes when I try to reactivate it
I have lost all of my windows themes so my desktop is classic version only
I do not have the money to upgrade right now, too many irons in the fire if ya know what I mean!!
Oh, BIOS is current, no newer versions available and all settings are correct.
