PC hangs!!!

By kamran_ishaq ·
Dear MasterMinds,
I have 32 Computers in my Lab. which configurations are as under:
Motherboard - ECS (GFXL) 133Bus speed
Builtin Sound, VGA, Modem
Processor - Intel 600MHz 133Bus speed
NIC - Anet (Realtek chipset)
RAM - 64MB
CD ROM - Maze 52X
FDD - Mitsumi 1.44
HDD - 20.1 GB Seagate
Keybrd/Mouse- Lunar
OS - NT 4.0 workstation SP 6a
Other Software:
Adobe Photoshop 6, Dreamweaver 3, Fireworks 4, Flash 4, Authorware 4, MS Office 2000, Acrobat reader 4, IE 4.01
Visual Basic 6, Turbo C 3.0, Nortorn Antivirus 2000,

The whole network is used Lucent CAT 5 cable and 3com, Anet switches and a Lantech HUB. Also FacePlate and I/Os are of AMP with ANET patch pannels.

I am facing a problem that sometimes during the software usage on the above mentioned PC, it stucks and remain in hanging condition unless I reboot the system.
What I have done to recover this problem:
1. I have verified the proper installation of each software
2. Check individual PC by removing from the network
3. I have supplied UPS and stabilizers for power impurities
4. Fixed PC on the location where another is working fine

But the result I got is same and still got the same problem of hanging in computers.

Please anyone have any idea to solve this problem, I would be grateful to him/her.

Kamran Ishaq.

Norton 2000

I think the bugs and incompatibilty of Norton 2000 software is creating that problem. I have had numerous problems regarding updates and running this program...

Norton Bugs

by Ron Larson In reply to Norton 2000

Norton has bugs and they recommend you not run it on startup, it also has a bug that stops the system from booting up if you run the optimizer. Best plan is to upgrade to 2001 or just use the antivirus and not the utilities. they have just released a fix for it.
If you have cleansweep installed remove it as it's a major problem.

what type of network?

by IT_Cowboy In reply to PC hangs!!!

you have omitted what protocol(s) you are running.
if its TCP/IP, try going back to the simplest form, NetBEUI (remove TCP/IP all together). if this solves the problem, there is a problem with TCP/IP.
