i have just started ripping and decoding dvd’s, and i had my computer freezing at various stages during encoding, it didnt matter what software i used the same thing happened.
after reading may of the posts here about this issue, i fiddled around with all sorts, till i read an article on pci issues.
my soundcard is standard vibra 128, but i also have an onboard sound card, so in desperation i removed the vibra and tried using just the onboard, to my surprise it now do not lock up at all.
intel pent 2.4 gig
512 ddr ram
geforce 4 vid card
windows xp pro
could this be the problem with most computer lockups, or have i just hidden the problem.
hoping to hear any ideas
