hi everybody, i need some assistance with a computer problem ofmine. i formatted my computer and reinstalled widnwos xp prof. edition and its the third time ive done it because of my computer constantly freezing on me after boot up. sometimes it freezes within a few mins of booting up and at other times it might freeze an hour afterwards. however, i cant seem to find the problem, i thought it might be the RAM but ive already replaced that. any help would be greatly appreciated thanks!

in the control panel
system
hardware
device manager
any yellow or red marks
if there are
right click and update the driver

if not did you find all the drivers
did you go to safe mode and see if
it still runs slow

try uninstalling those drivers and click on action
scan for any hardware changes
the computer should notice the hardware change and
reinstall those drivers

then restart the computer

the make and model of your computer would be handy
it wouldnt hurt to redownload all drivers from the manufacturer
they should most updated ones
