on startup. I have an Gateway that worked fine until earlier this week. it froze up when I was on the internet, I couldn't use the mouse or anything else. so I rebooted and it froze and continues to freeze up after I click on user account icon.

I'm running WinXP as it says in the Topic title. I have tried to boot from the WinXP installation cd and that hangs up too and it gets to the Windows Setup screen when it is loading files. I have also tried another hard drive with the same results. it also will not boot in the safe mode either.

does anyone have any ideas. if you need more info please let me know

Hello,

Use CoreTemp to get a accurate temp of your CPU.
