Hi All
Soltek MBO, 256MB SDRAM, 13.5GB HD, 500MHz CPU, OS WINXP Pro SP2.

PC behaving queerily. When pc boots up to Windows and left unattended for more than 1 minute, the PC freezes . Ctl-Alt-Del not working, HDD spinning and cpu fan working under this condition. After switching off and rebooting, I found out that by running WMP10,PC will work normally.
Your help appreciated.

you could install more RAM

256 is a little low for RAM

try adding another 512MB

you will see a big difference

download memtest and run it overnight

I suggest that Sysinternals free Process Explorer may offer insight:
