At the mo I'm certain that my processor is being burnt out as I used to have located underneath my desk on the floor with the vents against the desk it began to freeze so I did all the usual virus/spyware and other tests that are required, found nothing so I asked someone else to look at me for because I thought that the RAM was to blame that came back fine.

It still froze so I formatted it thinking that I might have a trojan on it and it gone undetected it still freezes now.

I am a student so money is tight I would like some confirmation on this please because I am thinking of purchasing this http://www.maplin.co...ModuleNo=228448.

Also I would like some inforation on to how go about uninstalling my old m/bd driver from my HDD before I buy these items pls.

All I know is that I need to do it via device manager but what do I get rid of.

Hi and welcome :)

Before we jump to the new mobo/CPU purchase just yet, let's do some more troubleshooting to see if we can pinpoint anything.

Download Speedfan and install it. Run the program and report back your temperatures and voltages.

Cheers

I have attempted to boot up my PC at least 5-6 times but it keeps freezing on boot up within the 1st 2-3mins.

Could this be the CPU then?

If you leave it turned off for about a half hour, then try and boot it up again, does it work? I'm thinking that the insides need cleaning out, a fan may be faulty or you need to reapply thermal paste to the CPU.
