    :cool: I have windows 98 se, 1.7 gb cpu, 256 ram, 40g hard drive. 31gbs free. My problem is that the monitor was turning itself off and on when I played Hearts online, so I upgraded to Radeon 9200 and took out the nvidia ge force. Now although I have no problems playing online, most of the time when I connect to internet while my homepage is downloading the computer freezes, ctrl,alt,del, doesnt help, and the monitor either turns itself off and comes back on with a test for monitor, or it just freezes up entirely and I have to re-boot and try and connect again, most of the time i only have to do it once, but sometimes it freezes again and i have to re-connect again, needless to say this is costing me :( I tried to read my email offline and the monitor turned itself off froze. :confused: :confused: Any ideas? I love 98 because I play heaps of games and xp is too slow for me. Thanks Sandra

    Thank you for the help. I did what you suggested but unfortunately when I tried to re-load radeon 9200 something didn't load and I had to get tech out.
