computer keeps freezing

my daughters comp keeps freezing since i formatted the hard drive and clean installed win xp pro + sp1
it might be because it is only a 900 mhz processor, so i was thinking of upgrading mobo and processor, but before i do that, i thought i would ask to see if there was anything that i could do first, it doesn't freeze at any specific time, just randomly,
but my daughter keeps commandering my comp because of this,
any advice appreciated

My daughters pc(1G Duron/256Mbs PC133 RAM)has run XP Pro without a problem(switched on 24/7)for a couple of years.It is more likely a software problem causing the lockups,have a look in XP's Error Log,it will have details of the problem(possibly)

i have found the error log and there are plenty of errors relating to certain programs and hardware
i might take the easy option and format the harddrive ready for a clean install
thanks for your help

have formatted harddrive and reinstalled win xp pro, with nothing else,BUT after about half hour it froze again, so i,m putting it down to under powered processor/motherboard, so unless anyone has any other suggestions, i will be visiting the local computer market for an upgrade,
