big windows problem
Alright so I got a a new computer a month ago. It's working great, but that not the problem. I am giving my older computer to my dad,(msi mobo, athlon xp 1800+, 256mb ram, 20 gig WD HD, 80 gig WD HD)
I installed windows 2000 on it but I have been havinga major problem! It boots up great and runs fine for about 5 minutes, then after like 3 min doing stuff on it, it has huge lock up periods, like 45 seconds a piece. I had my processor oc'd, it isn't anymore, but I dont think it's fried cuz it worked great when I owned the computer, and I had it oc'd like quite a bit. Does this sound like a windows 2000 compatibility problem or do you think it's my hardware? I literally just reinstalled 2000(and reformatted) yesturday so there wasn't a chance a virus or other things could be sucking up my resources.
