My computer, os windows 98 se. runs good for hours, then locks-up and I'm unable to turn off power
or reboot. I need to unplug it and plug it back in and then hit the on/off botton. it will then reboot and go on working ok for maybe aday or only minutes. I need a Geek to Go. or should I say come and help me :tazz:

First thing is open the case and check for dust ofnthe CPU cooler. If there is any, gently dust it off with a soft brush, or use canned air to clean it. Most machines need to be dusted out two or three time in their lifetime, or once a year if they are running 24/7. Also make sure the fans are turning.
