    well that can be a valid reason but i feel that since you started having this problem after you added DVD drive, may be its something to do with power supply :?:
    i m no hardware guy but i feel that either heat, power or memory (RAM) is one of the issues here!
    Mr. C or Wiggo who are better at hardware might be able to look into this problem in better ways, but thats my opinion.

    ok here is a new question

    When we reloaded win, it saved some files in 'windows.000' but some are hard to find, such as in Find FIle (I LOVE FIND FILE) And I'm wandering how to go about finding them, as to either save them, delete them, and Uninstall them. I know that some are still installed cause I can still use them, but they arent in the add and remove programs, and some I can't use cause of a missing startup exe or dll or something in that line. Maybe I can relieve some pressure by locating and getting rid of what I really don't need right now.

    And I am ganna get another fan hooked up, and hopefully more RAM TODAY!!

    Let's talk basics on the possibility of a heat issue, OK.
    Have you opened it up, and gotten all the dustbunnies out?
    Are all the fans running?
    Have you cleaned those fans? A lot of difference in the amount of air moved by a clean fan blade vs. a dirty fan blade.

    How many Watts is the power supply I wonder?

    Happy PC DAY EVERYONE!!!

    Today I recieved another fan, and I have 128 more meg of RAM, and a good dustin out, and..... and....... AND GUESS???




    CD-WRITER
    The other one
    took anywhere from 20 mins on, this one writes a whole CD in 2 min and 45 secs. And in two weeks I get the rest of what I need, He's even getting a way bigger hard drive! I don't think I need one, but between my getting upset earlier today, and for the fact that its been due, he says he wants to get one. Well that will just begin saving up parts again I guess.

    So now Mr. C what do we deal with now???? finding the hiddin folders and programs?

    So, do I understand correctly, that the system is no longer bogging down/freezing?

    If so, cool:thumb:
    Job well done!

    Still running somewhat low resources, I mean its only about 10% higher than before, And actually I'm not even using as much more/ or less, less windows open.

    K but we want to ask about the bios memory settings, plus about other settings. He would like you to check out the manual for the mother board and compare your notes with his. I guess he's wandering if something is off?

    But yes for the most part (85%) it is running very much smoother. Only froze I think twice, but I also put on a memory thingy soas to keep track of it, another temp app. but it works.
    And the writer, what a dream!!! I never thunked it could write that fast. And he is ganna get more Ram in two weeks, so for the most part, by the end of the month!!! <img src="http://www.angelfire.com/art2/twizlzone/35_1_.gif"
