    I always get time outs while working with XP Prof.
    I've got a PIII 700 and 256 mb. That must be enough

    Does anyone knows what is happening and can I solve this problem?

    Thnx

    What do you mean by "time outs"?

    Does it send you to your room because you have been bad? :D

    Sorry, couldn't resist:)

    re:

    OK, I probaly deserved that for being not spefied enough.

    What I mean is that XP freezes. I can't do nothing but wait till it's over.

    Try checking the Event Viewer and see if it will give you any idea of what may be causing a problem.

    re:

    Well I've checked the event viewer, There's one error that occurs on every boot it's the following

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: DCOM
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 10005
    Date: 12-1-2002
    Time: 17:59:37
    Description:
    DCOM got error "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. " attempting to start the service ImapiService with arguments "-Service" in order to run the server:
    {520CCA63-51A5-11D3-9144-00104BA11C5E}

    It's the service for burning cd's. I had it disabled because it would improve the speed of Nero

    i've already started the service.

    An other message is a warning see the following( it's about the plug and play leak in Xp

    Event Type: Warning

    There was a fix for that on the m$ website. If you dont have it get it. If you do have it. Uninstall it and reapply.

    I dont know which long winded number it is to uninstall though. You may have to try potluck and ditch them one by one unless someone knows which it is

    Thnx, I found out what the vent is about. It could be the cause of my problem
    This is what M$ wrote:

    The following Event ID may appear in the system event log:

    Event Source: PlugPlayManager
    Event ID: 256
    Description: Timed out sending notification of device interface change to window of ""



    MORE INFORMATION
    This Event ID indicates that an application that registered to receive Plug and Play device interface notification did not respond within 30 seconds of receiving a notification event. Applications can register to receive Plug and Play device interface notifications. After they are registered, applications receive notification events when an interface of the type they were interested in has been enabled/disabled for use by applications. This timeout is logged in the system event log. This Event ID is merely a warning that the application did not respond, and it can be ignored


    Thanx everyone who have replied
