Make sure you have the latest video card drivers.
That's always a good place to start.
many crashing problems occur because of openGL.
Were you trying a 3D view by any chance when it crashed?
Were you doing anything in particular that caused the crash?

Barry, thanks for your quick reply. I just got the IT staff in my office to look after it. After he loaded an exe file, called '169.21_forceware_winxp_32bit_english_whql.exe', the crashing stopped. Hopefully, its gone forever. Fingercrossing...
Very grateful
