My computer freezes randomly.
It may be a conflict but I don't know where to look to check this out.
Here is my system info;

Hardware Abstraction Layer Version = "5.1.2600.2180 (xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158)"
Time Zone Pacific Daylight Time
Total Physical Memory 512.00 MB
Available Physical Memory 222.90 MB
Total Virtual Memory 2.00 GB
Available Virtual Memory 1.96 GB
Page File Space 1.10 GB

I would appreciate it if someone could help me with this problem
Thanks
Mike

Could be heat related.

Open up the case, blow out all the dust with compressed air, check to make sure all your fans are spinning.

Thanks for the reply Makai
I am pretty sure its not heat related. I have installed a new heat sink and it stays around 48c except on hot days and it gets to 50 or 51c

the lock up can take place at 46 to 48c and it can happen when I am not at the computer. It doesn't seem to make any difference.

I do have two programs that can make this happen and they are;
Win DVD Creator
A1 Dvd Ripper

Here is my system info;

OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600
OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation
System Name DESKTOP1
