    Hi I have a problem with my computer, I was advised to re install windows millenium which I did perfectly until it came to activating plug and play programmes and it froze! it is still frozen 2 days later, following the instructions on the millenium disk on installation it says that if the programme freezes after what appears to be a long time then re start the system and try again, figuring that 1 day was a long time I restarted my system only to be taken back to plug and play programme activation again and again. here I am stuck what is slowly becoming a lifetime and can't appear to get out of it, can someone please help me ? thank you.

    I am not sure what plug and play activation is, can you post exactly what the screen says?

    Its just a guess but you can try unplugging andy extra devices you have plugged in like speakers, printer, scanner, etc.

    Thanks Brendan, my system is in spanish and I have translated as best I can here goes:

    windows millenium edition is initialising this configuration of hardware and the dispositives of plug and play may have.... and then it freezes.

    thats all it says, when I switch of the power and switch back on again I get the same screen with the same info.
