hi, i have a windows xp machine that's been having a few problems lately. for instance, when i tried to start up this morning, no icons showed up, and it said i had a lack of "virtual memory". it took a few restarts in order for the machine to get working. the no icons thing has happened in the past, but usually it only took one restart to get it to work, so i was concerned that i had to do it about 4 times today.
also, about twice in the past week, the computer has frozen on the screen saver while i have been away. this has never happened before in the 3 years that i've had the computer, so i'm a little concerned about this. both times, crtl+alt+del wouldn't work, and neither would the start button, so i had to end up unplugging the machine.
i would appreciate any help or suggestions as to things i can try! both these things seem to happen randomly, so i'm not sure what to do.
thanks in advance; this is my first time using this site, so let me know if there is something else that i should be doing!
