    Hi,
    I am having trouble with my computer. I have already posted a couple of threads thinking i new what was wrong but neither seem to be the cause of the problem.

    My computer is having problems staying on! It happens pretty much whenever it feels like it. I have recently upgraded to Windows XP and the problem has started since then, although before that I had trouble getting 98 SE to start up. THese problems all started since i brought a new graphics card. I did try using a different card with 98 but this didn't seem to help.

    I also get a message saying that i don't have enough memory to run some apllications, for example aol says that i don't have enough memory to show the intro screen properly and should close some windows, although I have no other windows open?!

    Is it possible that a conflict between my graphics card and another piece of hardware is causing the problem and i was unlucky enough to get another card that had the same conflict?

    Please help as this is driving me mad, and i can't stay on line long enough to install any up dates.

    Hi charliewest,
    Can you give a little info about your PC. Memory, Hard Drive capacity, Etc. Also look in start, run, type msconfig
