Hello, I need some help with my PC...
As of recently it started freeze up completely all by its own...
The mouse pointer stops moving the ALT-TAB doesnt work to switch between windows, the Ctrl+Alt+Del doesnt work, even when Im listening to some music, when the PC freezes up, the music stops playing... NOTHING is responding... I tried waiting one time for hours, but it doesnt unfreeze...

My OS is Windows XP
I havent installed any programs recently. Scanned the PC with Kaspersky and with my Adware and registry programs... Nothing helps...
Now, the PC starts freeze up as soon as it loads up...
Please help? What can I do? :whistling:

P.S. I cleared the fan from all the dust and I upgraded my Internet Explorer recently...

Hi there.

This freezing can be from a number of different reasons.

Since you have 512 RAM, is this 2 sticks?

Yeah, it is, but it was never an issue before... I've been using this PC for ages and the problem only started occuring about last week
