crashing with weird noise

June 8, 2007 at 11:04:04
Specs: windows xp, 1024 DDR

my computer constantly crashes now whether im doing anything or not. it makes a loud annoying sound coming from the speakers when it locks up to. it'll either restart right after it locks up into the "weird noise" mode or it'll stay like that. sometimes it just freezes the mouse and nothing moves. ive replaced the PSU motherboard and tested each stick of ram by itself in the computer. ive gotten a couple suggestions like my sound card or HD because my HD is like 5 years old. if anyone can help plz do thx

You need to troubleshoot, not randomly replace parts that *might* be bad. It would help if you listed your system specs.

if you have a creative sound card, and a mobo with nvidia chipset, that might be your problem.
