Hi all, I know nothing about how computers work. My computer is an older model and is very slow. My husband isn't able to play his favorite games on it any longer. It freezes often. I need my computer often for my business and we don't have the funds to buy a new one. Can anyone give me any ideas on how to fix these problems? Thank you so much.

If after following garmanma's advice you are still having problems have a look in the Event Viewer for any errors at the time of the freezes.

To open the Event Viewer go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer. Alternately, go to Start > Run and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Check in all three categories (Application, Security, and System).

If you find an error that occurred at the time of the freeze, right-click on it and select properties. Copy the information in the window and post it back here. This will help us diagnose your problem.

How To Use the Event Viewer
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
