Question about Compaq Evo D500 PC Desktop
PC: Compaq Evo D500 1,6 MHz, 256 RAM, 20 GB HDD, NVIDIA Vanta 16MB, OS: Win-XP sp2
When I work in an MS-DOS application in full screen mode, and like switching in windows application (ex: Excel, Word), I press WIN-key, but in this moment PC is frozen.
Problem is the same in "safe mode".
Problem is the same when I press "Alt-Enter"
I change the keyboard, change HDD, install a newer driver for graphic card, format HDD and install new version of WIN-XP, but the issue persists.
Please, do you have idea, were is solution for my problem.
Thanks per advance.
If in Win XP, and dos program running, try ALT-BREAK. I use a DOS/XP duel boot system for development. XP restricts dos programs from operating coms properly. If a dos program (made to operate in dos) tries to access coms, it will hang and lock the system down. Reboot is the only recovery that will work.

Do you see the Hard Disk Light ON during the time your computer is frozen? If that is the case there maybe an issue with the Hard Disk Controller.
When you installed a new version of Windows XP, did you format your entire Hard disk? (Just to make sure that your computer doesn't have a viral infection?)
Also, is it that the computer freezes when you press Alt+Enter ...or is it like the computer freezes after you press the Windows Key and then Alt+Enter?
Have you tried the Alt+Tab Combination?
