off topic - vista home basic locks up RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • i am running vista home basic on my pc ( Abit motherboard "IS7 series, 2 gigs of pc3200 kingston ram,
    intel P4 2.93ghz. processor, 1 350 gig sata hard drive and 1 250 gig ata133 hard drive. diamond video card 256M ram, etc,.
    i bought the upgrade version of vista, so far i am displeased. it locks up worse than 98SE ever did.

    i had one streatch of about 2 days where it didn't lock up on it's own... that was after i performed a disk clean, and defrag..
    but now ( two days later) it's back to the same old thing.

    it doesn't seem to make a difference if i have several programs running, or if it is sitting idle..

    i currently have 2 110mm case fans, 2 hard drive coolers, a large cpu cooler, and a video card cooler.
    i don't think heat is the issue...
    i was running xp pro, with no issues other than it's vulnerability to viruses..

    any ideas would be very much appreciated.
