My System : P3 550MHz, 256MB RAM, ASUS P3BFMB. ATI Xpert128 Video card, 80GB Disk.
The system would suddenly freezes (mouse cursor freeze, no response to Ctrl-Alt-Del under Win98) & the system must be reset.
This is particularly prone to happen when getting on certain web site. www.acura.com
is a sure one that no sooner Internet Explorer tries to load the page, the system freezes. Webshot is another. Freeze can also happen in other non-internet apps as well, often while using the scroll wheel on the mouse.
In frustration, I reformatted the disk & got a copy of WinXP upgrade & loaded it. No luck, still freezes, for sure when loading www.acura.com.
By now I figure it must be hardware, but what?
