Thanks V again, as your short words triggered a few thoughts. I remember seeing in a magazine on upgrading your motherboard. I applied the same principle. Remove all drivers from the windows with the mouse last of course! then shut down windows, put the new procesor in place.(In this case a pentium 200 mmx). I located the clock jumper settings and set to 3x, the other settings were already at 66mhz. Turned the pc on and voila, everthing came back up. The kids are happy they can now play their lego island and racers without 'locking up'. Thanks again to Trishs web site. Regards to all, Peter

You may want to check the voltage Most Cyrix Socket7 processors run at 2.9V and Intels run at 2.8V. No sence in generating more heat than is absolutly necassary.

I guess I can't flippen read you are using an AMD chip not an Intel so never mind.
