can someone help me with my computer before I smash it
I have a HP. It had ME OS loaded when I got it but I got rid of that. My computer was always locking up to were I had to shut it off and restart it. Well, I swtiched to windows 2000. All I have loaded on is Office, Flight simulator, Pspice (circuit design program), and my dig. camera software. My computer still locks up and will not respond to anything so I have to shut it off manually. I have removed/ reinstalled programs and still no change. The computer has the Pentium III proc. and 256 RAM. I added more mem. to bring it up to 256 thinking that might help but it made no diff. Now, the computer always locks up while on the net. Usually when I am switching to another site or scrolling down on a page. Once in a blue moon it will lock up like this when I am using Word or some normal program like that but not too often. I have ran Normal utilities on it, no difference. Anyone have some advice to offer as this is really frustrating??? I don't know a lot about computers and problems like this.
