just after solving the random restarting and bsod problems, im straight onto another annoying problem.
my computer randomly freezes.. im using win98se.
the ram and powersupply are brand new, so its more than likely a driver problem.. but how do i find out which driver is at fault?
sometimes i can go on the computer for up to six hours before it freezes and other times i cant even use it for 5 mins..
how do i pinpoint a flakely driver? or could it be something else all together?
:confused:

Right click my computer>properties>performance tab, see what your resources are. Go to start>run>type msconfig>ok>start tab>see what all you have at startup. If your not sure of anything to uncheck, go to start>run>type msinfo32>expand software environment>click start up>copy and paste what you have here.
