    ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+

    Probably something to do with drivers.

    This problem didn't started now....it happens since day one of this rig.

    There are no true old drivers for this MoBo...MoBo is a model with only some months...but yes, i tryed with original drivers and also with most recent....

    I also tested since BIOS 1.0 to the most recent...doesn't matter....it always get stuck...

    LOL i use XP for 7 years in several PCs w/o security patches....no problems.

    I also don't install IE,etc. ...made custom build with nLite...IE, WMP,etc. are major backdoors for virus in a Windows machine.

    The day i give up fully XP is the the day i migrate fully to...GNU/Linux.

    This is because i have serious stuttering problems or much less FPS in Win7/8.x with several games that i don't want to stop play and that have also Linux client where i have performance than with XP.

    This, minus the swearing.
    Get off of XP. If you've never heard of Zero Day exploits, I suggest you do some hard reading.

    I was ahead of you on that one but good call nonetheless.

    I can't wait to see what exploits surface after the 8th.

    Do you have an instant messenger/Skype, so we can try to debug this issue?
