Hi everyone, I hope you all can help me. I have been trying to get an older pc up and running with windows xp but it keeps freezing. I have reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled windows XP from an older version with Service pack 1 and it runs smooth. The problem occurs after I do all 76 updates for Windows and it upgrades to service pack 2 after that it freezes up on me after it sits idle for a few minutes. I was thinking that since iut is an older pc maybe the cmos battery on the motherboard may be going dead, but I havent had any other issues except for the freezing to indicate that. Is it still possible this is the problem? Or could it be something else? I have had XP SP2 installed on this pc before and it has run fine this has just started to occur. My system is a Pentium 4 1.5Ghz. with 384 Mb Ram and an 80 Gig HD. Please help me I am stumped on this.
