You will need to post a bit more information on this issue first :thumbsup: Post a more detailed explanation of what happens and which programs does it freeze on etc. This will help us determine the problem and a solution more efficiently :flowers:

Which application? Is it only a certain application or is it all applications? Can you log into Windows normally before it crashes?

Does it POST? Do you make it as far as the Windows login screen? Exactly when does it freeze?

Sounds like bad RAM. But you can try a reformat, maybe some Windows file have been corrupted.

You cannot format while still in Windows. Formatting will destroy all of your data, pictures, etc. Do you have a Windows XP CD?
When it crashes, do you get any errors messages? If yes, write them down in full

i asked other people on other forums as well as this and they said that i would need to format it with windows xp disk which i have got. I done it and it wiped everything as expected. BTW i never had no error message.
