:tazz: After computer kept on freezing and getting a lot of error messages and not being able to get into programmes I took the decision to do a reformat. This I have done successfully but I find my computer is still freezing quite often and I have to close it down with the power button and reboot. Sometimes it can go for ages and other times it freezes four or five times, one after the other. I am now at a loss to detect the problem. I have checked all the connections at the back.
Many thanks

Unfortunately, if you reinstalled windows, assuming you installed windows w/o errors, this is a hardware problem. I would start to make sure your computer is not overheating. Make sure all your system fans are working properly.

Many thanks for that, but how do I check if my fans are working properly?

Turn off your computer, open up your case and look at the fans. Put your hand over each side of them to make sure they are pushing air. Obviously, if they aren't spinning then they aren't working or maybe a cable has come loose.

EDIT: turn your computer back on with the case open to check this.
