I have a similar problem as 'skidoo 29.8.10' with freezing file - the difference with my problem is that I have recently had fitted an additional ddr1 RAM fitted hoping to speed up my pc, my pc appears to boot up normal but when I go away a leave it no matter what program is running the pc freezes up' to get around this problem i have to press crl-alt-del to activate the task manager and terminate the program that is freezing.

Have you tried removing the extra ram and/or swapping the sticks to see what effect it might have.
Is your new ram compatible?

FReeezing PC

1. Overheat due to faulty / blocked fans

2. PSU voltages

3. Household power surges fridge etc switching on/off

4. faulty memory stick try memtest click here

5. virus or spyware scan for both especially if shutting down with in a few minutes of switch on or internet use

6. driver conflicts especially grahics cards get the latest drivers for your equipment


If only happening since new memory fitted then suspect the new stick of memory.
