    I'm trying to find some help in the best way to troubleshoot this problem. I have made a post already but I think I made it in the wrong section of the forum so I wanted to try here. I play an MMORGP called Lineage II. Just like any other server based game I access their servers to play. I pay for two seperate accounts. What I do is open one client, log onto the server, enter game with a character in windowed mode. I then go to start and open another client, log onto the server with my other account info and onto another character and play them both. We call it two boxing. I alt-tab back and forth with I need something from my other character. A huge number of people play this way and I haven't found anyone that has this problem and some of them have lower end hardware than I.
    What will happen is every once in a while, I'll hit al-tab and everything just freezes. cursor, no keyboard funtion, nothing. I have to reset to fix. Sometimes it will work fine for hours, and then sometimes, it will happen every ten minutes. I am assuming it is a hardware issue but I have no idea how best to trouble shoot it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. What can I do to find the problem?
    Here is my general system info.

    Operating System: Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack
    Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2000+, MMX, 3DNow, ~1.7GHz
    Memory: 1536MB RAM
    RADEON 9600 Series Secondary (Omega 3.8.252)
    Monitor: Dell 2405FPW (Digital) Res: 1920,1200
