    You probably have 4 - 32 meg sticks of ram.

    You can buy just 1 128, or 256 stick, and replace 1 of your 32's with it. You can leave the other three in.

    Cheers man, think my ram needs upgrading anyway cos i remember reading somewhere that win xp is meant to be a memory hungry *****!, an my pc does seem a bit slower since installing it, your problem does sound exactly like mine, cos if i leave my pc off for a while then it seems to clear itself its just the fact that it seems to occur only when im running p2p apps that really p-ing me off! Better go to dabs and start pricing! thanks 4 all the help guys im sure ill get it cured one way or another now!

    Rightly you need a minimum of 256MB of memory for XP but 512MB is best for it. ;)

    YEEEEEESSSSSSS YA DANCER!!!!!!!!!!

    Finally iv solved the problem of my pcs mystery crashes!!

    Heres what i did/found in case anyone else has similar probs,

    I disabled the automatic bootup option after a crash so i could get the lovely blue crash screen up (thought id seen the last of those after upgrading from ME:laugh: ). When it crashed it mentioned a dll called alcan5wn.sys which i tracked down and found it was to do with my alcatel dsl modem driver. so i rushed off to the alcatel dsl website and lo and behold i found an upgraded driver and hey presto problem solved.

    HAPPY AGAIN! ( I hate in when my pc aint workin right)

    Thanks to all how gave advice regarding this problem it was really p"ss%ng me off!
