How long from switch on to the pc freezing? Is there any particular program that causes this freeze to occur?

Hi Gongoozler
No particular program and the time may vary from first switch on and have to reboot, to 2 hours or even up to 6 hours, am off to get new leads today, but i think could have something to do with the server modem, mind i put in new meory about a month ago, and new usb ,s to give me 9in total,

i put in new meory about a month ago

FReeezing PC

1. Overheat due to faulty / blocked fans

2. PSU voltages

3. Household power surges fridge etc switching on/off

4. faulty memory stick try memtest click here

5. virus or spyware scan for both especially if shutting down with in a few minutes of switch on or internet use

6. driver conflicts especially grahics cards get the latest drivers for your equipment

suspect faulty memory

Hi Fruit bat done the memtest above but did i do it right, first i had 256mb sdr memory original, then i had a 512 fitted every thing ran ok so i went and bought another 512mb memory this was a CORSAIR ddr 1 400mhz PC 3200, desk top memory, do you think its best to put in my orginal 256 with the first 512mb see how long it works for and see if this cures it, also do you know or any one what the test thowed up means, and how long do you have to let the test run and is it in all non user memory, ?? cheers

Just have;nt got aclue what is goin on with this PC, swiched it on and did not touch it apart from putting in my msn email and pass word, then got fone calls and was away from PC for an hour and it froze again cna any one help at all, please,

Let the test run untill it has finished do overnight

It will tell you if you have bad memory or not post the result here.

As your problems seem to start when you added the second 512 stick then its that one that is possibly faulty.

Once again as soon as i swiched on pc froze, rebooted and its been working for 3hours and 35mins now and not froze am crossing my fingers but know its goin to happen, Fruit Bat tried downloading the memtest but it would not run ?

  Gongoozler 16:37 06 Jun 2007

Try this version of Memtest click here, I've never known it to fail. Let it un continuously for a few hours. When it reaches 100% it has tested all memory locations, so 1000% means it has tested all locations 10 times.
