Default Computer Locks up

Can anyone suggest a step by step trouble shooting method, my computer locks up at random and I have tried everything. Uninstalling software, memory mods.

Appreciate any help!

Have you updated all your drivers? My system would lock up on me whenever I cruised into certain websites, my video would shut down. I updated my video drivers to the latest (March 2002) and now those sites don't shut me down anymore.

Is CNet a good way to make sure the drivers are up-to-date?

I think it's called CNet Catch Up?

C Net catch up works pretty good just dont do to many updats at one time.You can download a bunch but you can cause problems if you try to install to many too at once.

I dont know about C Net. I recomend u go to the hardware manufacture's website, which in most cases offeres the official and the latest drives.

If u tried everything and couldnt fix ure locking up prob, re format the computer and reinstall windows or what every os ure using.

CNET Catch Up is no more. It sucked anyway.
