Remove power, case cover and perform my yearly cleaning of heatsinks, fan checks, replace the failed fans and try again. I might pop a new power supply in if I find a small unit and I always look for BAD CAPS (type that at google.com)
My Windows 2000 has apparently developed some serious faults, because it keeps crashing. I get error messages I've never seen before, like WinMgmt.exe has developed faults and needs to close. I think it's time to start fresh and reinstall Windows2000 from my CD. Trouble is, I've never done this before, and I'm not sure how to proceed.
Should I format the hard drive to clean out old bad system files, or just put in the Windows2000 CD and hope the operating system knows how to clean itself up? If I do format the C: drive, how the heck would you do that---doesn't the C: drive have to be running for the formatting procedure?
Are there instructions for this sort of procedure somewhere on the net?
Thanks in advance,
