Ok, Where to begin, My computer specs are as followed:
Athlon XP 1700+
Win XP Pro - Upgrade (if you needed to know)
398? MB RAM (around there)
GeForce 4 MMx 440 Graphics Card
Don't know motherboard (if you could also tell me how to find out, i've looked all over the board for the name)
Now for the problem, I come home from school, turn on my computer and sit down. About any given time it wants to my computer suddenly freezes on me for no reason. My teacher said it might be a heat issue but it isn't, I've checked that all of my hardware is seated correctly, and formated and re-installed Windows XP twice. It started happening right after I started getting updates from Microsoft's Website. I don't know though. I I figured out that if I keep games and programs running it won't freeze up as often. And when it freezes it just quits. If it's in the middle of a song it starts to studder, a game or any other program it just freezes. Can't move the mouse, CAPS and NUM Lock key won't turn the lights on or off, and I have to reboot my computer. I know it isn't a virus so if anyone can help me with some feedback that would be really grate. Thank you.
