My computer keeps freezing up.

September 16, 2010 at 20:51:12
Specs: Windows XP, Celeron D 2.6mhz/1GB
Sometimes it runs longer than others. I have tried everything. I had occasional problems with it, just turning off with no warning. Then it started freezing. I finally reinstalled WinXP but that did no good. I have tried replacing the hard drive, RAM, PS and CPU. I have everything disconnected, I left then RAM in and that is all. When it starts up I go into BIOS and just leave it sitting there for a while and it will freeze up there also. To my knowledge, that would only leave the motherboard as being bad. Any time I have seen a motherboard go bad though, the power would turn on but nothing else would happen. No display, nothing. I can get this to load into Windows XP but after a few minutes, it will still freeze up. Any suggestions would be great.

If there is more than 1 piece of RAM on the mainboard, try use only 1 known good RAM.

Also check the mainboard if there is any damaged capacitor.

Hope this helps.

I have tried replacing the RAM, that has done no good. I see no damage to the motherboard. Sometimes now the computer won't even load into the BIOS or beep at all now when turned on.
