Ok, so I have a computer which I'm trying to use as a server... But it has the issue that it tends to become unresponsive after a while. First the internet goes unresponsive (as in it says it cannot display any page, but says still is connected) then it won't shut down properly... (Requiring a press of the power button to force a shutdown.) But beyond that everything else works, and works well. So I'm a bit baffled as to what the issue could be. Could it be that it's overheating? The guy I bought it from thought it may have been a power supply issue or ram overheating due to excessive use. But I'm not as good with hardware as I am with software, so I don't know for sure, any help would be appreciated.
As for the server... It's a modified Compaq Presario 6310CA (http://h20141.www2.hp.com/hpparts/Search_Results.asp?mscssid=EJWX0VNEN9RV8PGJ9QTAGCRVR21X5K3A
But since it's modified, here are my systems specs:
AMD (Athlon, I think...) processor at 1.4 ghz (with intel cooling fan on heatsink... Not sure of the name/model of the fan, but I suspect this may be the issue, but I'm not sure.)
512 MB PC2100U DDR 266mhz ram.
40 Gb hdd (Not sure of model of HDD either...)
32 MB Nvidia integrated graphics card
CD-RW drive (not sure of make/model)
6 USB 1.1 ports
4 USB 2.0 ports (seperate card... which was added. And this is where the D-link usb wireless network adapter is plugged into.)
D-Link wireless internet via usb adapter. (DWL-G122)
Not sure of the power supply model either...
Incase it matters, all the programs I'm using it for are: Xampp (Control panel v2.5) with AVG antivirus and Zonealarm firewall, also has utorrent 1.8 and Opera 9.52 as well.
