Well, i used to have a 1.6gigahertz pentium 4 with a 4G4A Motherboard and geforce 4 mx440 graphics card; a budget pc basically.
That PC died spontaneously after the screen went black, i restarted, and the PC decided to make repetitive siren noise like deedawdeedaw (overheating? my CPU was only 32* Centigrade!) and then i restarted it again, and then it made a higher pitched siren noise! I removed the RAM, then placed it back... woohoo another siren noise, removed the graphics card... laaa deee daaa yes it just kept making that noise. Anyway, i eventually gave up, removed the whole motherboard and gave it a backseat in my drawers. :lol:
I then put in another motherboard from an old computer which wasn't really that good but worked nicely, a AMD Socket A with a Duron 800megahertz processor and the same graphics card and stuff.
It worked, and i reformatted the hard drive to erase all possible viruses and crap. I went into XP, activated and stuff... and hey presto - it freezes. I restart, go back, it freezes. Anyway, it seems to only freeze when i start to download something nowadays but what i don't get is why everything i have starts to go wrong the moment i install it! I put the motherboard in correctly as well, nice RAM and everything. It's a pain in the ass!!!
I suppose my main point is:
Is there any cause for a computer to freeze when you try to download something??:eek:
