Desktop crashes at will.... Get me a beer.
Ok I have a desktop I've had since probably around 2005. My roomies in college built it for me (they selected the parts, and pieced it together). I've learned some about these, but software and problem solving get me every time.
Ok right now I just completely formatted the hard-drive and reinstalled Windows XP. I was running two 120gb hard drives. One was IDE and the other SATA. I just ditched the IDE because it was having issues and was really slow loading. I believe it was crapping out. So now I'm using the single 120Gb SATA drive. Just got XP up and running again, nothing on it but XP SP2 right now, java, and mozilla firefox.
It is randomly freezing on me. I dont get the blue screen of death or anything, it just completely freezes. This has to be a hardware issue, but I dont know where to start...
I'm not even sure what info anyone would need to diagnose this, so ask away.
If it freezes, I hit the restart button, it reboots right back up and when I open mozilla it will restore all of my pages I was just on... then away I go until it randomly freezes again. It doesn't really seem to matter if I have a ton of pages open or just one. It seems completely random.
Thanks for any help.
