    Hello,

    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 http://www.viaarena.com/?PageID=2 or from the Aopen website.

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