I honestly can't remember when it all started, but my computer has been refusing to work properly for months now. It keeps freezing, either while I'm doing something on the computer or right after the Windows XP logo.
I can't boot into Safe Mode at all, because it freezes then too, and I've performed at least 5 repair installs this year and none of them have helped.
It used to be BSODs over and over again (Driver IRQL not less or equal; page fault in nonpaged area; bad pool caller) and now, it doesn't even show them anymore. The computer just stops. The mouse won't move, the keyboard won't respond, everything on the screen freezes.
I've read on other websites that this might lead to faulty RAM, but I recently upgraded my RAM, so it can't be that. I really cannot afford to spend anymore money on this computer. They also say it might be a hardware problem, but I hadn't installed any new hardware before the problems started happening.
I can't even back up the main hard drive, because every time I try, it gets 80% of the way done and then freezes once again.
I'm really hoping that there's some way to fix this, because I need this computer and as I said, can't afford to buy a new one or any new hardware. I also can't afford to have it repaired by a professional, so that's out of the question.
I'd really appreciate any help on this. I'm at my wit's end.
EDIT: Forgot to mention that I'd also formatted it about 2 months ago, and that didn't solve the problem either.
