    I wanted to make sure the first thread went through before my cpu froze up so I posted it early. heres my cpu specs. HP pavilion pentium III 533mhz oem video and sound cards with all possible updates. my system resources are at 95% give or take 3%. I defrag and run scandisk and registry editors up to three times a day because they help just enough for me to post threads or other small tasks. windows 98se is my OS I have done a clean install of windows taken the side cover off the cpu and added a 12'' fan just in case of heat probs. when i start windows i normally will end all programs in the background. what now I am out of options. HELP ME PLEASE.

    Can you post the exact HP model. We can look it up on HP's website.

    The video is likely onboard as HP likes to use these to keep costs down. It may be adjustable in the BIOS to assign more or less RAM to the graphics chip. 11MB is an odd number.

    You definitely seem to have a hardware issue. Any errors? Maybe bad RAM.

    on the cpu case the model # is 8655c. But when I check the system information it comes up as an 8750c. The motherboard was replaced about 1 year ago as reccomended by the place of purchase. Maybe that is why the model #'s are different? I have 256k memory 128x2. I have tried them each individually but no difference. It took me 4 tries to reply this time:mad:
    Oh yah and when I went to the HP website the 11mb video memory is supposed to be the max. It is onboard.
