Check your fans to make sure they're functioning properly and your not locking due to overheating. Try service pack 3? Make sure the rest of your drivers are up to date for 2000 pro. Good luck

Go to www.easydesksoftware (do some reading about .dll's, illegal messages, Windows and registry tip's & tweaks while there), download & install Perfect Companion a registry cleaning, snapshot, and start-up menu cleaner. Run it, take a snapshot first of your files, then use the Start-up menu cleaner in association w/ the full start-up list you can find @; http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_pages/startup_full.htm , then after the start-up menu is cleaned up some, use Perfect's registry cleaner to clean up all those (=no value entries -from installs gone awry or un-installs of apps. & patches, etc.), in your system registry. Many tools are avail. for this purpose but I use Perfect Companion & Nortons WinDR. most often to achieve the task.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Always make a backup of your registry before you attempt ANY EDITING of the System Registry, this is your responsibility, not mine.

(Remove any clear spaces in the preceding URL's, that is done automatically to keep it from being a true link and freeing up Tech Republic's servers).

Should you not have any experience in editing a system registry, and not have the ability or willingness to learn or pay someone to have it done, then I would suggest for you to save (backup) your actual needed data on external media somehow, gather all your installation disks for wanted app's. & programs, locate your OS CD or restore CD's & all necessary hardware drivers and do a clean install of Windows as it seems like those matching .dll set's have been degraded to the point of no return w/out a registry clean-up. For info on how to do that properly for the beginner try; www.easydesksoftware.com/youformat.htm

I forgot, after you finish that registry clean-up & registering your .DLL's an active X files, run the snapshot utility and finish up the snapshot, you can actually see all those changes afterwards and open the log.txt to read it. Aalso contains an undo file in case you mess up @ all during the process to later undo any errors in the process.
