My computer has taken to regularly crashing. It does not come up with a blue screen, but instead normally freezes and then goes completely blank. Sometimes the graphics card also goes haywire, with the screen going a whole rainbow of colours. This happens most often at startup, and often I have to try to starting up 3 or 4 times to start up successfully. Occasionally during startup my computer claims that overclocking failed, although I have never knowingly overclocked it (I don't know how to). I have had my computer since 2004, my motherboard is a P4S800D and my graphics card is a Radeon 9800. I've run the standard cleanup programs (defrag/antivirus/antispyware) but there has been no noticeable difference, so I'd like a bit of advice now it's likely to need some more serious cleaning up.
Thank you in advance,
