Scolley when does the computer freeze ?

Using the net ?
Opening programs ? if so what one if you know.
Immediately upon boot up
or is there a time,for example 30 mins/1 hr/ when this freezes or is it just randomly

I would be tempted to change the psu,just an idea for you click here ive fitted several of these now and all work fine for the general user,even in my sons pc.

Just a thought here,have you removed the cpu by any chance ?

  scolley 23:25 11 Jun 2007

skidzy no havent removed it, as im a novice, when you say cpu, do you mean the processor, and make it bigger, psu is that the same as cpu,

  skidzy 23:29 11 Jun 2007

The psu is the Power Supply Unit easy to change.Will find a link for you with diagrams if needed.

The cpu is the computer processing unit,i asked if this had been removed because if so,you would needed to replace the thermal compound.This does not apply if you have not removed this.
