    Default Re: My pc keeps freezing

    Could be any number of things. Is the PC overheating?. Decent PSU fitted?. Any changes made recently either software or hardware?. Done a virus scan?

    When you do CTRL ALT DEL to shutdown does it show any applications as 'not responding'??

    Just trying to get a bit more info.......

    I dont know about the overheating but i have been running with the sides off since b4 christmas and its still the same, done virus scan and not added any new programs, even re-installed xp.(altho i havent tried a format)

    When i press alt ctrl del it never shows anything not responding however occassionally after about a minute it sometimes clears itself ie everything disappears from the screen then comes back again and sometimes it gives an error report saying a fault occurred in explorer do u want to send to microsoft etc.

    Hope that makes it clearer.

    Leaving the sides off can actually make the cpu / HDD's even hotter because this stops the air from being pulled through the system by the PSU.
    If it was previously working fine and you havent added / changed any hardware then it sounds like it could be faulty hardware (cpu / mobo / ram). Try downloading some diagnostic software to test memory etc.. Beg, borrow or steal another CPU to eliminate that, same with the ram.
