Computer Freezing

  firerescue999 21:51 29 Oct 2007

Hi, I have a problem with my PC.The screen keeps freezing. At first I thought it was driver confliction. After reformating my hard drive and installing no drivers the PC still freezes. I now think there is a hardware problem. Do you think it is the power supply, HDD or Motherboard? Many thanks.

Do you think a more powerful PSU will solve the problem?

Hi.You do not seam to be getting much response.I was going to say to check the air vents at the Back for dust and fluff,If clogged up would make the computer overheat and freeze.You would also need to clean the inside of the computer as well especially around the PSU.And yes it could be a PSU problem but as I am no expert I would wait until someone else can give you the advice that you need. In device manager is there any yellow exclamation marks beside any of your Devices.
