I recently had new motherboard installed, MK33, for my trusty old but updated (as much as possible) computer. Offline use of XP pro was freezing up on me quite regularly until I changed my DSL connection from USB to Ethernet card. Now I have freeze up when I try to play or download videos Online and have to reboot.
MK33 limits HDD space to 137G (OK), Mem is only at 512, I use Firefox & Thunderbird, have PNY graphics card Nvidia GeForce. MOBO tech checked my power supply & said it was sufficient. Processor is limited at 1.5G. I have the latest WinMedia player and have no problem downloading audio files.
When consulting DSL tech he had me disable a network adapter in Device Manager (package?) bad advice...and now I can't boot in safe-mode. (missing driver?) Any ideas for me? (other than "get a new computer"?)
