Have you tried to hibernate the PC and see if that helps? Or do you have ti set to hibernate after a set period of time? If so try to put it into sleep mode or standby mode not hibernate and see if that resolves the issue.
Also have you don eall the updates?
To check your power settings right click on the Desktop>Properties>ScreenSaver tab. Then under the Advanced or Powe settings.
- Updates for XP are current.
- Hibernation is not currently active, but Standby is after 10 mins and every time I resume from it the PC is fine.
- I don't know if this related or not but both Firefox and IE freeze or just plain crashes when I try to view any sites that require Shockwave - such Youtube. It has something to do with file flash9cx (if memory serves me correctly).
Could something be wrong with my video card?
