By mitch2010 ·
i have a AMDk62/3dnow-300Mhz, new soundcard just put in new memory and video card from another puter that works. new modem, 48x cdrom, and a 1st mainboard mother board. My question is my computer will lockup the keyboard and mouse alot usually when im on the net (AOL service provider)and at first I thought it might be the memory so i took it out of another computer that works and didn't fix it then i tried a video card from a different computer (S3-savage4/32meg ram)and i still have this problem of the keyboard and mouse stop responding any help would be apprieciated thanks

Check the device manager and see if you are having conflicts with othe devices
Start-Settings-Control Panel-Double click System Icon and select device manager tab,locate the Keyboard and Mouse click on the plus and then right click on the device,check to see if the device is working properly.
Now click on the driver tab and click on update driver button.
Option 2,click on the help menu and click on trouble shooting and follow the instructions.

You might want to consider your RAM instead of your V.card. Try swapping RAM from another computer if it works better.
Also make sure your sink fan works. Your computer might be overheated.
I don't think it has anything to do with settings, so maybe you could look into both of those.

More often than not, when I have seen lockups like you described they are caused either by a processor that LOOKS to be seated properly but is not, or from a processor overheating. Check your clock speeds and processor fan. If necessary add anotherfan or two to your case. (In my estimation, you can almost NEVER have too many fans in your case either on hard drives, case front, back, etc...as long as your power supply will support the extra load.)

Is it AOL 5.0?? I have heard many bad things about version 5.0. If you recently upgraded to 5.0, and noone else's ideas work, uninstall 5.0 in favor of whatever version you ran previously. It might solve your problem

IF this is a recent upgrade to 5.0 ........... AND nothing else works. Good luck!
