    If you want something that wont crash, go for 2k instead.

    So far, the only way ive managed to get 2k to crash on me is using my midi seq (Evolution Audio Lite). Doesn't pass parameters across to my synth (VSC3.2), which can cause a crash, but what do you expect from software dated 1997? Heck... it only reports me as having 23MB free ram - i have 850MB free...

    Where was i?

    Oh, right. Dont get 98, get 2k instead. More secure, Less viruses that target it directly, and, er, its still bieng supported/updated, unlike 98.

    hmm, now you are the first person i have ever seen bitchin about xp

    do you think it maybe a problem in your setup and not xp perhaps


    xp is 700 percent better than 98 in everyway

    you might find you go a bodgie version of xp, or that you have conflict in hardware, or bad drivers that need updating to xp


    what sort of games are you playing that crash

    give us some clues and we might be able to help

    hmm...i have this sinking feeling that it might be ur hardware...have u tried updating all ur hardwares' drivers?

    if winxp can freeze on all occasions, i dun think it's reli the OS itself anymore. mebe trying another OS, like win2000 might actually solve this

    otherwise, just switch back to win98 B)
    Please be kind to the noobs...we were once them after all

    The only time I've seen XP crash has been because of hardware problems.
    I have an Afreey DVDROM drive that just ain't XP compatible, and I had a bad stick o' RAM. Another machine I saw locking up on was due to a mobo with an inherent problem.

    For me, the real beauty of XP is it's stability. I can leave my machine on all week and it runs like it was just booted - something you just can't do with 9x/Me.
