    crashing following ugrade

    ***Advertisments***
    This PC keeps freezing since I recently upgraded the Mobo and CPU (Athlon 2.8) and videocard. 98SE. (Also frequent Msgsrv32 error messasges). It took 3 reboots to post this message. Is this to be expected. Do I start afresh with a new system HD and fresh OS install?

    Make sure you have the latest BIOS and chipset updates, and install XP. 98 is a crash demon.

    I would recommend a fresh OS install. With such a major change in hardware, you probably have old hardware registries and drivers conflicting with the new stuff.
