I personally own one a dc5100 mt and I never experienced Vista on it but it could be driver issues, Windows 7 fixes most of them. But it could be software running in the background that is taking up bandwidth of both your CPU and RAM. I would recommend buying/upgrading your ram modules, the system runs DDR2 5400, Max 1 GB of RAM per slot. It also may be updating when the hangs occur. But overall i would highly recommend either Windows 7 or drop back down to XP.

I don't think the program is compatible with Vista. Were you running Vista when it worked a year ago ?

PC hangs randomly


This may be problems inside your computer, for instance, your power supply could be bad or intermittent.This could cause this problem. Any loose connections or bad connections in the computer can also cause this problem. This could also be a hard drive problem, if the hard drive is not functioning correctly. This unit should be return for service and problem should be listed as intermittent hanging problems. This problem could also be a lot worse like a bad cpu chip or motherboard.All the service information should be in your owners manual. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Intermittent hangs with high fax volumes


Normally it would be as simple as queing and sending faxes but there are times when the problem is the line to the internet. If that goes very slow at some point during the send there is a chance that the modem will hang. Check if you are able to get on the internet with no problems for about an hour. How long do you notice the faxes going before it hangs. Also which actually hangs the third party software or the modem itself. You can test the internet by downloading a file see if it hangs up or becomes very very slow.
