Just installed XP(Clean Install) on my:

AMD Duron 800mhz
Geforce2
CMI sound card
3 HDD equaling 72gigs
soyo Mother board
blah blah blah

Whats the best way to track down why my computer is locking up????? It started when I was unzipping some files, then once while I was burning a movie. And once when I was just d/l'ing some files over night(Woke up and computer was locked/frooze)

All my drivers for my video card,sound,mouse,etc. are up to date.

Any info on the best way to pin point a lock up???

Thanx!!!!

You can see a log of what happened on your system using event viewer.

START>CONRTOL PANNEL>ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS>EVENT VIEWER

Hope This Helped

Ya I did that and didnt see anything that points to a crash.

I did disable shadowing beyond video in the BIOS and things seem ok for the time being, I'll let ya know how it goes.

Thanx
