    How old is your system? Do you have anti virus and/or a registry cleaner? Do you clean and defragment you discs? Let me know at "add a comment"

    i have formatted my hdd couple of times. so i guess there might be some hardware issue.
    i wil have to check the RAM , but i think it is a SD RAM 400. Any way i can check that ? wil it be written on the RAM? i wil try the boot test u hav suggested.

  • randeepsp Mar 23, 2011

    i checked with my CPU usage, it shows 90% to 100% when i try opening any folders/drives or play any song . does this give any more clues as to what could be wrong.

  • randeepsp Mar 23, 2011

    how do i get to know exactly which RAM i have. the specifications of the motherboard say it supports DDR SDRAM.

11 years is a long time for a processor to keep chugging along. If you haven't formatted recently, this may help with any crashes you are having within the OS. If the problems are occurring at boot, it would certainly seem to be a hardware issue. Try using Hiren's Boot CD to diagnose your hardware. I recommend the following download:
Then all you need to do is burn the image to disc and reboot into a very user-friendly menu system.
NB: Hiren's Boot CD is completely free, so you are not infringing on any copyright laws by downloading it using this URL. However, a quick search on Google should return a server-hosted copy of the disc if you are not comfortable with torrenting.

    The Boot CD contains tools to test your RAM, Hard Drive, Processor and just about anything else you can think of so its a great starting point.
    User randeepsp is right to say that you may need to defragment your hard drive and clean your registry to improve general performance and possibly solve some crashing issues.
    To make this as painless as possible, I recommend Defraggler and CCleaner. Both made by Piriform and can be found here:
    Best of luck!

    Let me know what system you have, ie; Dell, HP, Model #, and I'll see what I can find out.

    Heavy CPU load in Windows explorer is quite a common problem with XP- a kernel bug of some sort. Techguy forum user Rollin' Log suggests the following simple fix:

    Open Start > Click 'Run' > Type regedit

    Then navigate through the folder tree on the left as follows:


    Now right click on the PropertyHandler folder and then click 'Delete'.
    That's it. Restart your computer and see if the problem persists.

When booting long press the delete button to enter bios, when your in, select the boot section and disable quick boot, then save and reboot, bios will check the memory or ram of your desktop.
after the test when the system reboot the same and didn't said ram fail or test fail the ram is working good.
now I'm sure that your running out of memory or lack of memory,
try to clean up your disk or delete unused files, or update the memory
probably your ram is ddr 1 pc333/400

Max RAM for Intel 102 GGC motherboard

Thanks to Intel website The board has two 240-pin DIMM sockets and supports the following memory features: * 1.8 V (only) DDR2 SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts * Unbuffered, single-sided or double-sided DIMMs with the following restriction: Double-sided DIMMs with x16 organization are not supported. * 2 GB maximum total system memory * Minimum total system memory: 128 MB * Non-ECC DIMMs * Serial Presence Detect * DDR2 533 or DDR2 400 SDRAM DIMMs Note To be fully compliant with all applicable DDR SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with DIMMs that support the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) data structure. This allows the BIOS to read the SPD data and program the chipset to accurately configure memory settings for optimum performance. If non-SPD memory is installed, the BIOS will attempt to correctly configure the memory settings, but performance and reliability may be impacted or the DIMMs may not function under the determined frequency.

Vista compatiable

intel doesnt list any vista drivers for that motherboard on there site so you might run into problems with the intergraded devices such as the ethernet,audio,chipset, & any intergraded video

You might be able to use the xp drivers but if theres problems it wouldnt be supported by intel
