Re: My computer problem
Posibly not enough RAM.random access memory, that's where the computer operates. the harddrive is just a storage facility. it operates in the RAM. a large program,such as windows 2k or XP needs a lot of RAM., 256k or more.the more RAM you have the better it will operate.128k is just the bare minimum.. It may boot up, but just barely.Get yourself a 512mb RAM strip and it should work just fine. John

Could be a possibility that there is a background process which is consuming most of your memory due to which its getting hanged. You can try to start the computer into the clean boot mode and observe the computer performance.
start->run->msconfig select Selective Startup and uncheck "Load startup items" and then click OK.
Then restart the computer. Hopefully it should resolve the concern.
There are many reasons that cause your PC to hang upon start-up.
1. Start-up programs ie outdated or not compatible
2. Outdated Drivers of your hardwares
3. Your PC is infected with "dangerous objects"
4. Hardware failing..
4.. Softwares and hardware incompatibilities installed on PC.
You have to troubleshoot to narrow down the causes.
Increase the buffer size. Your PC is playing the video faster than your internet connection can stream it to you. Let the PC load the video for a minute or 2 before you start viewing it. (Not all websites load video until you begin playing it, so this may not work)
if you are reinstalling from a dvd...its just probably having trouble in reading the files from the disc...try another disc...and also ..try to format the C partition before loading files...it might recognize some old files...and misguide itself..
it sounds like ann overheating problem or a driver is corrupt, go to control panel>administrative tools>event viewer and look o the programmes and software menu to see if any red crosses or yellow exclamation marks are showing, if so right click on the line and select properties to give a clue as to the problem
continual restarts are either a corrupt driver, but its a process of illimination as to which one so start your pc in safe mode (F8 on boot up)and select start windows in safe mode; as this will only load the graphics in VGA mode and not the main driver and if it all works ok without the graphics driver, suspect the graphics driver and uninstal it and download a newer version.
The other bios problem may be the fact that your cmos battery (CR2032 disc shaped on the motherboard) may need changing if all your settings are wrong (eg date and time are always wrong)and you have to keep pressing F1 to continue to load windows.
