Hi everyone,

I've got a $6000 duel Xenon 3.6 that is nothing but a paperweight right now.

I've had this machine for 1.5 years and ever since new it's had this recurring problem of freezing when I try to log in. I'm the only account on the darn thing. It used to be if I restarted 4-9 times it would eventually load the desktop. I'll save you the long story with the mfg. but after they reformatted the hard drive, I reloaded all my software, (Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, Avid video editing, and MS Office 2003). It worked great for about 1 month and then started the locking up again. Today I've rebooted no less than 20 times and it hangs every time. It comes up on the desktop blue screen with no icons or taskbar and that's as far as it will go.l

If anyone can help I would reallhy appreciate it. I refuse to deal the Guy Graphics out of Utah any longer. They insist the machine is fine.

Thanks,


Chris

You do any routine hard drive maintenance on this system?

Run chkdsk /r?

Defrag?

Run a diagnostic on your hard drive?

Hey,

I can recommend Uniblue Registry Booster. I have a much less expensive computer (only 700) but it showed the same problems of yours. I can say Registry Booster worked wonders. There are also other alternatives, but I'm not willing to explore it yet. But your problem also sounds part physical.

Registry software should be used At your own risk
Remember to back up the registry first
ERUNT is an excellent FREE tool that allows you to to take a snapshot (backup) of your registry before making changes and restore it when needed.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
