Please can anyone help me - I am at my absolute whits end............
Im sure its a few hardware conflicts - so here they are :
1. My computer keeps freezing, whether its on the internet or offline.
2. When I start the computer up - b4 I do anything - I get the message "Computer has Performed an illegal operation" - I press close but am able to carry on - but I know this shouldnt happen.
3. I seem to be using up a great deal of memory when I havnt actually got that much on the hard drive.
4. My sound is sometimes all 'bitty' - I presume that this is because of the mentioned conflicts.
My computer stats are:
15 GIG Hard Drive
Windows 98 (2nd edition)
Please - if anyone can help me - my e-mail is as follows:
If you can offer me any help or need to contact me regarding more information needed in order to offer a possible solution please do.
Ill give a free Lolly Pop to the 1st person who can help me
Thanking you all in advance.

Is there any more info to the illegal operation message? Are there conflicts showing in device manager? Can you give a list of IRQ usage? Have you tried F8, start menu,step by step and loading drivers one at a time to if if there is an offending driver?
For the mem issue have you checked in start>run>msconfig in the startup tab to see what's running in the background? Disable everything except what is needed.
Some things to start.
OH Your gonna have to do better than a lollipop!!!
