Guest Captitalistdoginchina Posted October 9, 2000 Share Posted October 9, 2000 Hi Madmatt, I seem to have a problem with my PC freezing about once every evening (Usually when i am playing CM) ......now i am sure (Well positive actually) that the problem is not with CM but more with Windows......i do not know who else to ask in this commie country, its not like we have a PC World superstore with a friendly Tech support counter in the highstreet!! So may i graciously ask for some advice? Let me explain the problem. When the PC freezes i hit Ctrl, Alt, Del and it says notepad is not responding????? But i have not used notepad....Hhhmmm. I cannot end the task as the pc locks up at that screen so i have to hit the power switch. I have tried many things and i even went to the directory and deleted notepad!! but it still happens. As a tempory fix i restart the PC and hit Ctrl, Alt, Del to see if notepad is open and sometimes it is sometimes not, if it is i end the task and the pc will be fine. I do not know why notepad is running in the background in the firstplace. I checked my start up folder and it is empty - so it does not start from there. Anyway although it is not strictly a CM Tech issue the problem effects my playing CM so am i justified to request divine advice from the God of all Techie problems and solutions? I am running Win 98 SE - 256MB RAM - Athlon 900 - Hurcules Prophet 64MB. The rest of the pc spec is not relevant unless you need it. Your advice would be most welcome.
