whenver I dialup using my 56k modem, my system stalls for about 10-15 minutes. Not a typical CPU stall or freeze up (CPU levels are normal) - I simply cannot open up new applications for the 10-15 period. Applications that were already open beforing dialing up work just fine - no slow down.
Usually I just open up the applications that I would think I would need...and then just wait until the freeze is over.
Whats the deal? anyone have any idea what could be causing this?
Otherwise I have a pretty good system - pretty of RAM, Pent4 2.4, fast /large hard drives.
I would suggest having a cell phone handy and call your dial-up customer service and get some real answers... a 10 to 15 minute freeze-up is a terrible waste of your time. I mean, c'mon, you are already using dial-up, why should you be made to suffer more? Who is your ISP?
ps- If it DOES end up being a hardware/software problem on your side, most tech support (if trained properly) should still be able to help you troubleshoot to a certain point (I used to work for verizon tech support, we would t-shoot a person's entire system if needed).
