New PC

Ok I just put together a an Intel p4 2.4 800fsb pc with onboard audio/lan, and Geforce FX card. The problem is whenever I view the windows update page, or a graphic intensive site, the computer freezes. I checked the irq's, no devices conflicting, nothing in my pc is overheating. This only happens when im on the internet. Any help would be appreciated

  1. windows is updated... the system also seems to hang for a moment when i attempt to use the address book after initial internet explorer startup. Not sure if this is related or not.
  2. What motherboard and operating system?

  3. Hehe, sorry. Try setting PNP OS to NO in BIOS so it's configured by the board instead of Windows. Also, how much RAM do you have? Did you install all the drivers that came with your board?

  4. Are you aware of BLASTERWORM,
    it will always cause WIN2000 and WINXP OSes to crash when your in the internet.

    NT Authroity: 60 seconds i think pops-up and will shut down.

  5. Or it could also be infected by a VIRUS.
