Hello
Can anyone please help?

I recently upgraded from Windows ME to XP Professional, but my machine constantly crashes when it is playing a game, or running a couple of programmes at the same time, the screen turns blue, and says that it is "dumping physical memory" "please restart".

I have a 30gb hard drive with still 8gb free.

An EPOX EP-8KTA2 (via KT133 AGPset) Main board

One stick of 512mb 168pin PC133

AMD Athlon 1200 mhz

Creative Live 1024 sound card

32mb GEFORCE II MX (now known as a 3D PROPHET II MX)

I have downloaded all the latest drivers to suit, and also flashed the BIOS, but it still keeps crashing.

I am on broadband, and I trade a lot on ebay, I can open up a good few pages on ebay at a time, but if I attempt that while listening to some tunes on the Media Player then it will more or less guarantee to crash.

My knowledge on this is very limited, but is there drivers that I should download for the main board itself

Any help on this would be much appreciated

Copper.

If you did an upgrade from ME, my suggesting is a clean install. Upgrades are frequently problematic...

Hmm, if it was just the games causing it Id say get a new graphics card, at least a 64meg but if you can get a 128, the newer stuff WILL need the extra power. Also never use winmedia, it sucks get winamp. Other than that yes do a clean install, if you have to backup your old drive, you could maybe get a mate to let you LAN up with him and keep the files on his PC until you finish, or you could buy a few CDs.
