Computer Freezes

My computer freezes if I leave it connected to the internet for any length of time (about 5 minutes) without carrying out any activity. It particularly seems prone to do this when left conected to this forum. I have run sfc /scannow and also removed a programme which I thought may be the cause. All fans are working and temperature readings for the machine are normal. I'm running XP Home on an AMD 2000+ CPU with 1Gb Ram. Any ideas?

Hi, mine used to do this on a fairly regular basis. Freezing is sometimes caused by a loose connection/connections - in my case I thoroughly checked all fittings throughout, don't know which it was, but have not been having the problem since(touch wood).

Cheers.

Thanks for your response. Will check all connections tomorrow and report back.

Checked all connections and it doesn't appear to have solved the problem. Think I'm going to have to format drive and reload OS to clear any rubbish on the drive and get a nice clean installation. Thanks for your help.
