I put a 2tb hard drive in, 4gb of ram and a d-link network card 1gb in my xp....and when I just simply went-on yahoo answers and was scrollin down, suddenly everything freezes, and can't do anything no task manager by holding buttons down nothing, I had to hold down the power button to get back on the computer, but I really want to know what kind of freeze was this when nothing got overloaded or anything odd, so here's what the sceen looked like when it froze~~~~The normal looking yahoo answers colored page froze, and got multipled 3 times in one direction diagonaly and a bit blurred, and each of the three where now a tinted color, one was red, one was blue and one was green and nothing could be done except power button shut off....does anyone know what that crash/freeze was? Why it could have happened?

You replaced 3 hardware items and the problem happens. Start replacing them one at a time and see which one is causing the problem. Could be you have not loaded the correct drive for the LAN card.
