Use anti freeze
The main issue regarding Windows® ME is freezing and crashing. It happens when multiple programs are running and they consume excessive memory. In such cases, run the antifreeze tool. It is an emergency task manager. It kills all the programs that take excessive memory. This tool works only when your system stops responding due to software or memory issues.
Disable disk detector
Your hard drive might remain constantly active even if you are not using Windows®. This is because the system restore is creating backups of all the files. To avoid this, disable the disk detector. By clicking the disk detector icon in the control panel, you can disable this.

Sometimes when you switch on your computer, the light comes but no videos content appears. Check whether the cables are damaged. Make sure that the video card, RAM, and keyboard connector are inserted properly. If the problem still persists, then set the CPU voltage, multiplier and clock settings to the motherboard.
