My WinXP SP3 Intel Core 2 Duo PC has an ASUS motherboard and is fairly new. Very recently it started freezing randomly and would then work fine for days together before starting all over again. I eliminated all issues one by one till I finally got to the root of the problem by replacing the data cable connecting my IDE HDD and DVD drive to the motherboard with a new one. This too worked for a week without issues but now it suddenly started again. I have removed the cable connection to the motherboard and left the PC on for 2 days and nights without problems. However, I cannot use my HDD or DVD drive. I have a primary SATA HDD though. What could be the problem here and is there a solution? Thanks for your time.
