Hoi

I have a recent problem with my XP SP2 machine. On this machine are several users (all family). After switching users (withour logging off) and when this second user logs off, the computer freezes: keyboard doesn't work, monitor blanks out (gets no signal, powerlight is flashing) but there is still harddrive activity (hd light flashes). If I want to get the pc working again I have to restart te d**n thing...

Anyone had the same problem and/or knows the solution?

Sounds like it might be some power settings? After reboot, have you checked your event viewer to see if anything is logged?

Will have a look in the event viewer next time (if you can tell me where to find it....). It could also be a problem with a powersavings program called "local cooling". To find out I just uninstalled it and will give it a go tomorrow.


Thanks

Start, Run, eventvwr.msc

Good luck with the local cooling thing.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
