Hi,

My machine gets hanged very frequently. Typically once for every hour. I did not install any new programs that would affect the PC. How do I resolve the problem?

Your help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Jithendra.

Hi :thumbsup:.

Well...the first thing that I would do...is run chkdsk, using the Graphical Version.

Chkdsk Explained, Understanding What Chkdsk Does - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314835/EN-US/

Running CHKDSK - http://www.1securitycenter.com/windows_xp_faq/chkdsk.html

I would also write down any error messages which might appear. To facilitate such, I would

Disable Auto Reboot On System Crash - http://www.theeldergeek.com/auto_reboot_on_system_crash.htm

I would also read How To Use Event Viewer - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/

I would check the amount of memory installed.

I would ensure that the system is not overheating...by checking to ensure that fans are operating properly, etc.

Using the Event Viewer is very important, IMO.
