Hello,
I have an XPS 720 that recently started freezing during installation of any program. I figured it may be the HD so I bought a new one, except now the computer freezes during the reformatting phase. Once I get passed that after several attempts, it freezes during XP installation. If I get by that, it freezes during the installation of any other programs.

Unfortunately, I cant see all the specs on my computer atm since I am going through the reformatting again...I know I have a NVIDIA Vid card. I have not overclocked the system and the computer appears to receive power with no problem,

Thanks for any help you can offer!

Tiger in the LIVE CHAT channel #geekstogo suggested reseating/inspecting the RAM, which fixed my problem.
