    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
