Computer Freezes
 
I just put my new system together. It was the outpost soyo mobo and athlon AMD 1700 XP deal. I am using an Xpert 2000 32mb video card and maxtor 40gb 7200rpm HD. I am running win 98.

The problem happens after I leave the computer for a bit and the screen saver turns on and then after a bit the screen saver shuts off and the monitor goes blank. When I go back to the computer and wiggle the mouse everything turns back on alright but the first program I try to run after returning to the computer the computer will freeze. Any advice on why this happens?

Thanks

I had a problem like that, and solved it by replacing the Soyo motherboard with an Asus one.

Not sure why it happens or how to fix it but you can avoid it by turning off some things:

right click on desktop-->properties-->screen saver-->power-->for "turn off monitor, "turn off hard disks," and "system standby" just select "never"
