    Stop beating around the bush and reformat the thing already. And use metric, the rest of the world does. We are trying to help, but having to do temp conversions is a deterent.

    Ok, ok. I'm planning to do the reformat. The driver cleaner didn't change anything. I changed the cpu fan and the temp dropped to about 45C (no load), but lockup as usual. It looks like the chipset heatsink is glued on, so I didn't want to force it off to install a chip set fan (temps running around 23C noload). I am also planning to buy a case that has case fans.

    I'm lazy at heart (although I've done a ton of extra work trying to avoid a reformat), but I've resigned myself to reformatting and reloading everything.

    I reformated the hd and re-installed win2000. I installed sp4. I installed the latest 4in1 drivers. I installed the latest ATI and soundblaster drivers.

    I reinstalled Generals and zerohour. I installed the latest patches.

    Now when I start zerohour, the screen goes black before the EA screen, but I can hear the program startup sounds. Then the computer freezes after the intro movies.

    What do I try now?
