Hello

I have a Windows XP Media Center Edition computer, I'm on SP3
I have had this problem for a long time. Don't know what's causing it. My computer temperature is fine.

My computer freezes usually more than once a day. Often it's while the computer has been left idle or when I am watching videos/listening to music, but not always. I thought it was a video card problem, but not so sure, since the computer almost NEVER freezes while I am playing graphics intense games such as Halo.

When it freezes, (if I'm listening to something) the sound goes all LOUD and techo sounding...like short repeating loops/skipping, until I hard crash it. I NEVER get BSOD's. I wish I did, at least I'd get more info. It just freezes, and I have to hard crash.

In Event Viewer under Application I get many MANY errors for Perfnet (ID 2004) "Unable to open the Server service. Server performance data will not be returned. Error code returned is in data DWORD 0."

I also get alot of Application errors (ID 1000) "Faulting application wlcomm.exe, version 14.0.8064.206, faulting module kernel32.dll, version 5.1.2600.5781, fault address 0x00009eda."

Also after every freeze, I notice that in Event viewer there is a log under 'System' for AVGINFLT (ID 17) "AVGNTFLT successfully loaded"
This is NOT an error, just something I've noticed shows up every time. (part of Avira Antivirus)

Anyway, if someone could help, I would greatly appreciate it.

This is what I get for buying E-Machines...

How much RAM installed? How much free space on C: partition?

Not sure that eMachines can be held responsible for...a system that's way past the warranty...or situations induced by the user (O/S errors/situations).

System model?

If not done already, Disable Automatic Restarts When Windows Crashes - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/74644/how-to-disable-automatic-restarts-when-windows-crashes/

Thanks, I have already done that. It doesn't restart, it just freezes. Locks up and usually makes a loud digital repeating noise (if watching video or music at the time of freeze)

I don't get BSOD's either. (lotta help that is)
