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?

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.
