The thing is that if i turn it on for the first time of the day Windows XP comes to a halt at random times of the loading process (usually it's before the welcome screen shows up but it has also frozen after the desktop is shown or while the Windows bar is loading).
To get it back on i have to reset it a few times and then i can use it normally. This also happens if i turn the computer off for a few hours and then turn it on again.
I also sometimes get the BSOD instead of the freeze, most of them are IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA.
At first i thought i would be a bad memory stick so i replaced it for a new one. No luck, the issue was still there.
Then tryed removing my video card (GeForce FX 5200, AGP) just to make sure there was no dust in the motherboard's AGP connector. Plugged it back again but nothing changed.
My last try was to purchase a new hard disk and make a clean install of Windows XP, as some of the BSOD said the ntfs.sys caused the stop. Installation process went ok. I also didn't install any drivers to make sure if a driver was causing the problem but no luck also. (am i a really unlucky guy or what? jaja)
At this point i don't know what else to try.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
