HI, i am having an issue with my computer that is driving me crazy. THe computer, for some reason, keeps freezing up. THe video doesnt drop, but rather freezes on a particular frame. I am wondering whether this is possibly because of the video card or the hard drive. I have done spyware and virus checks, and they came back ok. Any suggestions as to whats going on, Id really appreciate some help. My specs are:

P4 3.2 ghz
AIW ATI9800 PRO 128 MB
WD 80 GB 7200 RPM
ABIT Is7 mobo
1 GB kingston hyper x ram

Open your Task Manager and monitor it to see what proccesses are using your CPU. And review your event logs, they contain valuable clues to your computers operation.

Anything that uses close to 100% of cpu time, except system idle process, and the logs will have "error" whenever anything isn't right. Freezes usually mean something is using 100% of the cpu's time. But what? Hangs usually mean a process isn't being completed. But Why?

Hi,

Follow Tyger advice and post any errors but could you also post the temps.

You can use Everast to get the temps, after installed open computer and click sensor, then post the temps.

Also when does this freeze most often occur? When playing a game?
