Dell School Problem-

Alright- these dells that my school bought are having major problems- they are 1gig celerons (i know....) 256mgs ram- 20gig hd- and win xp pro- they FREEZE constanlty - the xp is a ghost and i dont know what that would have to do w/ it. I am also having a problem w/ one that the MB and HD have been replaced- but it looks like the PS is killing them everytime they are re-installed aweek later- I have replaced everything - any clues?

Freezing is either heat or software corruption, and the fact it's happening to all of them points to a bad ghost/image file.

Guess a IRQ conflict is always possible, but those tend to be really picky about letting XP even startup if it were severe enough to crash it (XP never crashed for me and I crap on it regularly).

try turning off ACPI. I had to reinstall windows XP once a week before I realized I had to turn off ACPI. Just go to device manager and select the computer driver, should say somthing like ACPI enables computer, and then update driver select from list and choose "standard pc".
