Hi all,
I have had my computer for 1 year now and it has been crazhing frequently. I have checked out some websites and have done some checks on the hardware in my computer, trying to gather as much information as i can. I have a webiste which has an article which highlites a problem that may occur between a p3 processor and the intel 810 chipset.

http://www.cnn.com/TECH/computing/9906/04/pentium3.idg/

I have a HP Pavilion 8624 and i have upgraded the ram, and the video card but none of these have helped. I was also wondering if there are any other people out there that have this same problem.

thanks

Did you follow the proceedure laid out by HP for updating the 810 chipset with standard drivers, then disabling those drivers before you install the new video card and drivers?
Take a look at this proceedure.

What OS are you using? I have a P3 with 810 chipset, it froze constantly with WinME, but never with 2k/XP.
