I don't have a backup computer to fall back on. I have been
around and around with compaq about this with no resolve. I feel
like slaming my 5838 down everytime it locks up. As a matter for

fact it just locked up on me while typing this. It happens about
once every 10-12 minuts for about 30 seconds. I have

sometimes had to shut it down to unlock it. I hate my computer, I
hate compaq for not fixing it. I will NEVER buy

another compaq ever! If anyone has any answers PLEASE contact me.
I have

done everything form loading the new BIOS to adding more RAM.
Thanks to all compaq suffers who respond.
