I hope someone here can help me; I've been struggling with this for weeks.

Whenever I rip to mp3, the WAV portion of the rip goes fine. I use EAC, v0.95, configured according to help here and at the EAC website. It calls lame.exe, which is in a subfolder of the EAC folder, with the following options:

User-defined encoder
extension .mp3
command line options: --alt-preset standard %s %d

LAME starts and encodes part of the file, but a short way into it, it hangs the whole computer, and I have to reset it. Occasionally, for reasons I haven't been able to figure out, it'll actually complete the encoding, but more often than not, it hangs.

Some information about my computer, with more data provided as needed:

1800+ Athlon XP
512 MB RAM
LAME 3.90.3

It used to work beautifully, and I can't figure out what's changed. Help!

According to Everest, my CPU has 43-45 C while encoding LAME files and 37 C when idle. You might also get a new fan if cleaning doesn't help. Mine is a silent Papst fan which rotates at 2500 RPM.
