    Does anyone know if IRQ conflicts mean anything since I'm having crash problems?

    Hiya brosssf1.

    Not sure about the conflicts although you could always take all PCI cards and USB attachments out and then reboot, putting them back in one at a time. Leave the AGP/PCI-E graphics card in place as that probably isn`t the cause. Also try re-installing the MoBo drivers.

    As a side-note, why is the system on D drive? Are you running a dual-boot system by any chance in which case, what`s on C drive?

    yes that is a good question ..the drive situation, I'm guessing because i left a memory card in the printer when i just recently reinstalled XP, which shows up as a drive ....drive c: It currently shows up as a shortcut to drive D:\??? How does one change this back to C:\... or eliminate ??

    Hiya brosssf1.

    With the machine off, either take the card out of the printer or unplug the printer for the time being. Now boot it up and right-click on `My Computer` then left-click on `Manage`. Under the Storage menu, click `Disk Management` to show all attached storage drives.

    Most drives can be changed in this program other than the system drive. Right-click on the drive in the right hand pane and choose `Change Drive Letter` and once changed, make sure you reboot and let Windows find the `new` drive.

    It might not let you change the system drive as it doesn`t like being changed while it`s running which is a catch 22 situation. One way round it is to use something like Partition Magic to change the system drive, set up drive letter mapping and let it reboot to do it`s work before the system takes hold but if you`ve never messed about with PM, it`s probably easier to format and re-install if you`re really worried about it. At least that way, you`ll install to the default C drive and it`ll clear out any junk you`ve accumulated !
