Need more info about your Presario system:

Operating System? 95?, 98?, etc.

If so, find following information(Memory(RAM), Processor type, Hard disk space available)via the following menu hops:

START > Settings > Control Panel

Double click on "System" Icon. Select General Tab at top, will show processor type, etc.

Performance Tab will show Memory, system resources %available, etc.

Double-click "My Computer" icon on your desktop. Right-click once on your hard-drive(C. Left-click once on Properties. This should show you available space on the drive.

If need be I'll point you to Scan Disk and Disk Defragmenter, but first:

What're you using when system locks up?

Cool Compaq

You also may want to contact Compaq. I saw on CNN that there is a problem with the Presario OS and they have have a fix for it.

http://www.compaq.com/support/

this is the compaq support site, check them out.

Did you have this problem from day 1 since you got the computer ? Does it happen only when using a perticular piece of software ?

If it was ok at the beginning that what was installed / updated/uninstalled since the last time it worked fine to present ?
