overheating? enter bios and check the pc health status. how high arethe temp of everything. and are all fans running. this is just a thought but probably wrong. so you could try and report back.

would help to have some idea of what you were doing when your system freezes,and if there were any error message/s come up etc.

the pc will freeze at any time there is no pattern or time scale and it happens when on the net, playing games,downloading music etc.

You say it happens at random, but in your 2nd entry you suggest 'when on the net, playing games, downloading music etc'... would also those have the internet in common?

  Horgie 17:04 09 Nov 2003

no what i meant was it can happen at any time whether on the net or not, it can happen when the pc is just sitting with the windows screen only.

go to accessories and system tools and get the resource meter up. it might show you if it is lack of resources.

it is not lack of resources, this checks out o.k. any more ideas, also can someone help me with the bios option and the suggetion that it could be overheating.
