    my win 2k hates me i have reformated my hard drive and reinstall 2k every day for the last four days. win just locks up on me randomly and not in long time span but short ones like every 2 hours or less. i have no clue what started this. i didn't add or install anything new when this happened i just tried to come back to windows from linux which worked fine. any ideals??

    well i figured it out everthing was useing irq 11 however the thing to change it was lock in the device manager prolly because i use a pirated bootable copy of win 2k so i went back to doing it the long way with my boot disk and what not and reinstalled my origonal version non priated software and bingo no irq sharing at all

    Win2k support acpi bios functions so if you have such an option enable it I found that win2k works better with it enabled
