My computer has suddenly started to freeze until I reboot.

I was not far along after an install of WindowsXP so i did a reinstall ... does not solve the problem. I have tried to rollback to any updates I made before and it still freezes.

If anyone knows anything that I should try, please let me know.


Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 2
Athlong 64 3200+ (Socket 754)
Asus K8V SE Deluxe Mobo
1 gig crucial Val-u ram
ATI 9800 Pro 128MB

Mobo Temp (Idle) 31c (Gaming) Not sure

CPU Fan 2463rpm
Chassis Fan (Big 120mm) 2191

Any questions or help would be nice

First thing would be to run memtest and report what you find.

What psu do you have?

When you did the reinstall did you install the drivers that came on the cd with the mobo?

Your temps look good and is not the problem

If you are getting any error messages please report them
