Hello Recently my computer has started to crash at regular intervals. There are no error messages, the system simply freezes, and has to be rebooted. Ived tried safe mode, and that crashes as well. Its happened in a variety of circumstances, but it always happens after a short viewing period if I open a video file (.rm) in Real Player. I tried opening Windows Media Player and that froze almost immediately. Any ideas on how to track down the problem ? Its not hard disk space; I have 35 gb.
Thanks for Your responses. Ive checked that the fans are all working and I couldnt see any dust. Ive tried a different graphics card, and borrowed some DIMMS from work to swap the memory. The problem is still there. The PC is on an upstairs ring main with just 2 radio alarms in the bedroom. Is there any way I can test the PSU ? Im trying to get hold of a second hand processor..
