To open Event Viewer, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Control Panel. Click Performance and Maintenance, then click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Event viewer. Expand event viewer to full size so you can read the errors. I would first click on System and see if you have any red or yellow icons there. You can double click on each line to expand it in a new windows so you can read it easier. If you do not understand what it says , copy the Event ID number and description to a new post here. You can Highlight the text in the description and then click on the ctrl
keys on your keyboard. Then go to the post( this thread and a new message) click in the message box and then click on the ctrl
keys, and your message should be in the message box. You can do as many as you want. BUT, if there are too many or they all say the same thing we are wasting out time posting all of them.
I am looking more for red
icon errors than warnings
I get very few red errors on my XP computers and most of those are timeouts on webpages. Maybe 1 or 2 a day on those. And no other errors at all. Guess i'm lucky, but i don't get to investigate those things if i don't get any.
