Ok I think I've adjusted something and it's now caused an issue. So two Q's does anyone know of any system tools\programs that can help in finding why my system keeps freezing? Or does anyone have any ideas where I can look manually to find the issue.
It's not hardware issues (I believe) OP sys W2K Pro SP4+ ASUS A7V600-X MoBo
I've mentioned the MoBo in case anyone knows of an ASUS tool that I could use?
Have you tried vacuuming out the inside of the case paying special attention to the fans and the processor fan. I needn't mention about disconnecting the computer from the mains and that you should be very careful;-)). This has cured freezing problems on many computers that I have dealt with.
No Gandalf all is pretty clean as I have recently (withing a month) been in there cleaning out. I'm at the moment running CounterSpy, AVg and Spybot just to make sur eI don't have a little bug, but I'm pretty sure it's something I've adjusted, I do have a recent Regbackup but I know it's never quite that simple as going back. And i'd made other changes bios to you know what it's like all seems to be going well, then bang the blitter bites you.
Have a look at properties on your hard drive, and see if it looks full, or fuller than it should and defrag sometimes a computer can create Logs that take gigabites of space. Also download and run Regseeker click here
I'll check out the Regseeker but I know that the disk is ok been running Prime95, done a memtest, and I defrag regularly my disk is portioned and the half I use most (primery) is only half full I keep the disk clean as I use a cleaner.
The only other thing I can think to do is to unplug all your peripherals (Printer etc) then try and if you have no problems plug one in, try again, then plug another in and so on to see if there is a confict anywhere. Before you do that, check in the Device Manager to see if all looks OK.
