    I have a very weird problem with XP. I've installed it on a AMD Duron 750, with 192MB Ram, AK33 Motherboard, Maxtor 6GB Harddisk a ASUS 40x CD-Rom and a Philips CDD3610 CDRW.

    It works very good but when I try to install a program the system crashes when it copies a large file to the harddisk.

    I've tried copying installation files before installing, this works in some cases but when copying a large file the system hangs again.

    Does anyone know what the problem is????????

    Make sure all your IDE related drivers are up-to-date (4in1's for VIA chipset), and make sure all of the windows updates that you need are in.

    Look at your m/b's site for bios updates too.

    Thanks for your help, I have already downloaded the latest BIOS revision but do not know which IDE drivers I need. The Motherboard is an A-Open AK33

    That motherboard has the via kt133 chipset, you can download the latest drivers at or from the Aopen website.

    Also how much free space do you have on your hard drive?
