[local.mac] Please Help !! Gross Incompatabilities !!

scb1@tank.uchicago.edu (Sam Blackman) (09/22/89)

I need some help in a big way !! Here's the scenario :

My Mac SE system keeps crashing, and I'm not really sure why.  I've tried 
removing various inits, isolating various components, etc. and I'm turning
towards your wise minds to help me figure out any incompatabilities that
I'm missing ...

The system :

Mac SE with 4 Mb RAM, 40Mb internal HD
System 6.0.2 running multifinder
Trying to run HyperCard 1.2.2, Word Perfect 1.0.2., Excel 2.2 at the same time
Also have a Daynafile 5.25" drive attached
LocalTalked to a LaserWriter IINT (using LaserWriter/Prep 5.x)

The problem :

I keep crashing out of Word Perfect - the machine will freeze up when I try
to switch applications.  This crash is sporadic, though.  My machine freezes
when I try to print in HyperCard.  I've check the "About The Finder ..." after
all applications are loaded (from Set Startup) and it shows adequate free
memory (approx 1.3 Mb).

I'm at a loss for what to do next.  If you can help me, please e-mail me
at scb1@tank.uchicago.edu.  I'd really appreciate it !!

Thanks in advance.
