I'd suggest that the density of your disks might be different than the floppy itself.

or the floppy is broken

or there's a virus scanning going on, and the floppies are infected.

could be any of these.

Machine freeze every so often. Checked HD and


Does you machine produce any error messages?
One of the programs you installed is probably causing the freezes.
Try to identify any programs that freeze when you try to run them.
Uninstalling the program should help solve the problem.

You can not rule out viruses though

My pc freezes :(


Hi redjeans21,
There can be a verity of reasons that can cause you to loose display. I'll list some suggestions you can try that may fix this issue. After each suggestion try the game that freezes the system more often than the others. (If you have never cleaned the inside of your system please do so). Use canned air & blow out the guts of the motherboard & power supply).
First, please make sure your antivirus software is up to date & run a full system scan. If you need a virus scanner you can download & install AVG for free at this link. http://free.avg.com/ww.download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition Once you are sure your system is clean let’s run a test on your system memory. Click on the link below to download memtest86 software. http://memtest.org/
Scroll down the page until you see three monitor snap shots. Download either. (Suggest the floppy software which is the easiest to use). For bootable floppy disk test software download, (Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win). To create bootable CD test software, (Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip). Boot your system with either disk, floppy or CD & test your memory. You'll know if there is a problem & you'll know what you need to do. (Let’s hope its ok).
The integrated VGA video card is not the greatest for playing games. The reason it is not is because the onboard video uses your system memory to function. Part of your 512MB of system memory goes to your video card & windows XP needs all of the 512MB. It's suggested that an XP system run with 1GB. 512MB is still ok. System freezes are more likely caused by software, including registry errors. Download & run this free registry cleaner. http://www.pctuneuptips.com/recommends/clean/?gclid=CL2RiIrTmpICFSFMGgodODIPzg
Restart your system after the cleaner has finished. Next try running windows check disk. Right click once on My Computer & slide to & left click Open. Right click on C: & slide to & left click Properties.
Left click the Tools tab & than click, Check Now... for Error-checking. Your system will restart & run check disk. Lastly, buy an AGP graphics card & disable the onboard video. The MSI KM4M-L motherboard can only run an AGP card that supports 1.5 volts. This link is a 1.5v AGP card:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4097741&CatId=318
The card above comes with a 2 year warranty.
More AGP's: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2145957&CatId=318

If nothing above has helped or fixed the freezing issue, I would do a fresh install of windows, including a format of the hard disk drive.

Good luck redjeans21!

Computer freezes when trying to detect S-Ata drive


Hi Eamon, download Samsungs drive setup utility, tools from Samsungs web site. Creat a bootable floppy drive setup disk or a CD bootable disk.
http://www.samsung.com/global/business/hdd/support/utilities/ES_Tool.html
Enable the SMART function using the setup software.
If you are going to use the Samsung drive as the primary master drive as the new C:\ you will need to enter the bios & set the Hard Disk Boot Priority, page 30 in you're manual to see the Samsung drive.
Connect only the Samsung into the system. Boot the system & use Samsung's software to setup the drive & format.
Disconnect any other hard disk drives that may have windows installed in it.
