It is running Windows XP.  (Sorry, but this list has a better quality of
members (better answers and more prolific) than the Windows XP list).  When
I go into Task manager, the only CPU listing is System Idle Time.  The
memory is showing up as 85 MB in use.  I have 512 MB installed.  The
Performance graph shows up as 2% in use.  I found an article which says the
LCD and my modem type may have problems, and I found another which says the
Hot Keys and the screen display do not like each other.  I turned off the
Hot keys, disabled the modem and stopped the display icon from starting in
the Task Bar.  Sorin suggested I empty my Prefetch folder, so I did.  It
only had 4 MB in there.
Sometimes it starts up fine, then I have to wait 5 to 10 minutes before the
Start button will work.  When it is locked up, I can open Task Manager, but
it stays there when I close Task Manager.  The mouse moves, but clicking
does not work.  If I click something a lot of times, it will open a bunch of
them when it frees up.  It works great, then simply locks up at random.
Thank you

what OS is this thing running? From your description, can I assume it's
windows? What version?
It could be several things. Check temp files, background programs/services,
memory usage, pagefile, etc...
Once it comes up and is available, how does it run? Is it still sluggish or
does it run fine?

Does anyone have any experience with a Model number L4TVA, BIOSTAR Microtech
Int'l Corp.  All in One PC?   When I boot mine up, it takes 10 minutes
before I can click on Start or get any Icons.  This thing locks up all day
long.  I just started working here and this is the only PC I have to use, so
I can't gauge anything against it.  We have 3 of them here.  They all lock
up.  My other users are using older Dell PC's and they are not having these
problems.  The guy who installed them onto the network is gone on vacation
so I can't ask him for 3 more days.  I have been using this for 4 days and
am out of ideas.
Has anyonme else had experience with these?
Thank you for your help
Jesus Loves You
