a while ago i started experiencing some freezeups. so i thort, psu i changed that with a brand new spare i had and it fixed the problem now, about a month on i have started getting the freezeups again about 1-1.5 hours after bootup i re-installed Xp when i put in the new PSU so i think i can rule out that. so now it comes down to either the RAM or CPU but has anyone got any other suggestions what it could be and how i can rule out my cpu without using a different one with my computer?
yes i did but i dont think its overheating tbh because i have one fan on the side of my case (galaxy 3) another one on the back of it one on my cpu heatsink one on my graphics card and obviously one on my PSU
but, i should of said in my first post that when i restart it has a tendency to freeze when it boots up aswell and i have to leave it for about 30 mins for it to calm down before i go back to it
