I think that you are trying to screw up your computer so you can get your parents to buy you a new one. But thats just me.

Install Windows 3.1 on a nice big chunky new computer - if you want to waste time. You could even try to get it to go on the internet if you wanted.

The big question is - what are you on?

It sounds like you are trying to get enough information to create a batch file that will crash a computer. To me that equals virus like activity.

And that equals activity that will not get any advise from me.

crash it from dos, eh?

1) insert a DOS boot disk with cd-rom support

2) Insert Windows ME CD

3) Type in x:\setup (x being your cd-rom drive)

After the installation it should crash just fine within a couple hours

hope this was helpful

ok, heres what to do:

open word and hold down ctrl+n which opens up a new doc. keep doing this and hopefully... EVENTUALLY.. the comp will crash..

i havnt tried it on xp but it works on 98. i am strange and in boring simpleton it lessons in school i have 'crash wars' with my friends to see who can crash the computer fastest. its funny and supprisingly, slightly entertaining..

if not, just pour lighter fluid in the ports and toss a lighted match in the general direction.. (havent tried that one in school yet )

when you decide to try that one at school, it might be your last one.
