hey everybody, ive got a weird problem. everytime i turn on my computer, i can use it for about 2 minutes and then it freezes up on me. what is this and how do i fix it? i just got it fixed once for that and now its happening again. its got Windows ME on it. is it my startup? i can be listening to music or playing games or typing a paper and it will freeze up on me. it happens with any open program, not just a specific one. HELP!!!!!!!!:eek:

Hi joshuabrown1851, welcome to TSG.

What did they do last time to fix it?

Does it freeze EVERY time after 2 minutes......

ok this is the deal....its not exactly 2 min, but i have like a small window of time after it boots up and everything...they just fixed everything and took out the network card, when i took it in....well in the last case, my cd rom stopped working and i couldnt even turn my computer on, it just wouldnt boot. but it did all of this as warning signs last time too. EEK! i dunno, i just need an educated guess at whats wrong. anything?
My response:

Well, my best guess is that you have an IRQ conflict.

I'll post your reponse back to the thread, and my response as well.

But do this:

Start button, run, then type msinfo32 and press ok....go to hardware, IRQs, edit, select all, edit, copy and paste your response.
