Do you also have Norton A/V on this computer?

I have seen buggy startup behavior if a computer has Norton A/V and Sound Blaster installed, some sort of conflict between the two. You must change the starting order of the two programs. I am sorry I do not remember more specific info, it has been a while since I have had to deal with it, but perhaps a google search will help, or someone else here at BC knows more specific info on this issue. It is a known issue and much has been written about it on the internet.

(This is assuming, of course, that you even have Norton A/V)

Part of your issues may be a lack of RAM. You should have 256mb although 512 would be ideal. XP is a beast when it comes to RAM. Most system I have installed XP on chew up 80 to 140 mb RAM right out of the box, without any software running. My system uses 230mb and I have 512 mb installed. You should be able to pick up 128mb for less than $20.

What acklan said!

You see these large computer manufacturers selling these low end machines with 128 MB RAM, it ought to be a crime!

Especially since RAM is so cheap. I see the name brand computers going with DDR instead of Sdram. These are not high end machines that will not take advantage of the bandwidth. Just stick with SDram where possible. IMHO
