i have HP Pavilion 8612.its a pentiumIII with 600Mhz.it has (64+128)MB RAM and 40GB HD.
I have win XP installed on this system.Now the problem is that whenever i connect to the internet my system hangs someytimes within 5 minutes or sometimes after 30 minutes.i have tried many things(i have norton 2006 with all updates and that removed all viruses from my system) but tyhis hanging problem is not rectified.
I then installed win98 that came al0ng with my PC. Though the speed of the system drastcally increased, the problem of PC hang on connection with net became severe n my PC start getting hanged as soon as i connected to the net.
then i formatted my C drive and agian installed XP on it.then i defragmented it.but the problem is still there.
i would also like to mention that limewire also causes crashes a lot.
now i have almost stopped surfing on my PC a s it is very frustrating to reboot it after every 10 minutes n startt everything over n again.
a local vendor told me that my 128 MB RAM is not fine n i should get it changed.but if this is a RAM problem then why does the PC hang ojly when it is connected to net.So i thought of rtaking forum's help.
it would b appreciable if somebody could help me on this.
i think i have provided all the relevant information abt my PC.
