PC restarting / freezing

Recommended Posts

My pc is driving me crazy. It either freezes when at desktop or restarts occassionally. I really can't pick out why it is doing this.

 

I'm currently running:

XP SP2

1gb ram

170gb hard drive

Pioneer DVD player

 

I have Mcafee antivirus

spyware doctor.

 

Have had it refomatted....no luck....hard drive just replaced...no luck....pc guy checked the ram and it seems to be ok....is there a program i can use to check if there are any probs with my cpu etc.

You will probably have better luck posting in the user to user section.

 

It sounds like it could be a heat issue.

1 don't use that repair guy again. :b33r:

 

now does this problem start as soon as you turn on your pc or is it something that only happens after its been on a while?? more likely to be a temp prob i think if it only happens after being on a while but might be wrong.

 

also can you do a pit test here's a how to link http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress/howto.asp

then post a link to your results in next post.

this will give the experts all the info they need about your pc so they might be able to help you better.

Usually the restart / freezing will happen just as I turn my pc on....the freezing usually occurs when i get to the desktop screen. Following are the results of my pc test....the pc guy said it could be motherboard prob, could be anything, wasn't much help...i feel like i just want to build another computer but i'm broke and want to preserve this one until next year.

What is this program? "MyFreeCodec"

Did you download it on purpose?

 

Mmmm..i have never seen this in my life! It looks like spyware...i will remove this.

 

Other than that, can anyone see any major problems?
