View Full Version : Squeezebox consistently hangs XP

I bought a Squeezebox a week or so ago and it just constantly hangs my
Windows XP computer, so much so that even CTRL-ALT-DEL doesn't work!!



I only have 4000 or so songs (mixture of WMA/MP3) and am running a 3000
Athlon with 1Gb DDR RAM on an ASUS motherboard. Slimserver just eats up CPU
and eventually I have to switch the machine off - it will hang doing nothing
for 7 or 8 hours at a time.



So far, I'm exceeding unimpressed and considering returning it. I've tried
turning off zonealarm, killing most processes, purging the song cache but it
still doesn't run for any length of time before crashing the computer.



If slim.exe is running at startup, sometimes my internet connection runs
slow and sometime even clicking Start does nothing until I kill it through
task manager



Any thoughts?
