hello, recently i have been getting a lot of random lockups. at first it was just playing games like CS but its been happening more such as last night when i was transferring a lot of files over a network. it seems that it freezes mostly when the hard drives are being heavily accessed. im also getting an error when i try to use media monkey, a program that sorts music and then fixes the tags, as it searches my music folder.

I do not think it is your hard drive. This is more of a OS problem as windows XP and the ntfs file system uses databases to link to drivers. Somewhere one of your programs has changed the link to the drivers. Some antispyware programs will do this.

Heres a tech article on ODBC of which i can understand only parts of it.

All this is well beyond me but i thought you would like this information.

media monkey seems to be using the ODBC database function, you getting that error due to a fault in whatever Database its trying to read access in general,

u could try reinstalling the software OR if the program has a repair option try that
