I'm having a problem with a locking up computer.
The computer I'm having trouble with is constantly freezing up. Not when I play games or anything, because I can't even install a game, let alone get a CD in the drive before it freezes up. It freezes to the extent where I have to hold down the power button to turn it off.
Here's some information that might be helpful.
"224" Mb of ram (Odd number)
AMD ATHLON XP 2200+
Running on XP Home edition
Never before used, it was brought back to my step-dad's work right before his work shut down. We brought the computer home, it was never before used, I know this because it was still on the Welcome to XP page when I started it up, and all of the discs/accesories were still in the original packaging.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'll be heading to a computer hardware store next week if I can find out what the problem is and what I have to replace. (Also I have another computer extra that has great components/parts, so I will most likely be able to test anything you guys can throw at me.)
