I have updated the Bios, all the drivers ,and, the system is still locking up...does anybody have a fix to this problem ?

at what stage was it locking up, mine was locking up when I was doing a full virus scan on drive D (Mirror RAID Array) but when I did a full scan in safemode it was ok, I had to download a intel chipset update to solve the problem

Thanks for that

Hi Vmail

I seem to have resolved the problem , I first replaced the processor from a 1300 Duron to a 2.4 Athlon , and added a Geforce 2 , for good measure, BUT....it did the same thing locked up again ???:confused:

I then proceeded to change the motherboard and it seems to working great ..........So this one was a faulty MOBO, just go`s to show the process of elimination can rule out the most obvious problems.....Drives you up the Pole though!
