i have just had a major hd crash and had to fit a new h, the problem is the computerkeeps freezing while trying to load programes even when reloading windows which i have now got to load i have had to leave out the sound card as this locks every time i load it i have tried it on another computer and it works fine.have fitted a new graphic card but the same happens it locks up .. is this a mother board or processor problem.
thanks dave

Could be a memory problem - if you have two or more chips, leave just one and see how it goes.

Also, check the disk for any problems - a reformat / reinstall may help.
