okay, my husbands computer is one or 2 yrs old. its windows xp home, and lately the screen freezes up really fast. sometimes theres this high pitched beep that won't stop. and we'll have to turn it off manually. or sometimes, its sends us to an error page that is either black or blue.

I honestly don't know whats wrong with it.

I would love some help, thanx.

Sounds like overheating...

Download System Information for Windows (SIW free version)
No installation required.

After it scans your computer, navigate to Hardware>Sensors and post all info from there.

If this is for an idle computer, you're overheating.
Max. temp, for your processor is listed at 60.4C.
54C is dangerously close.

Get a can of compressed air, turn the computer off, open the case and clean it well inside.
With the case open, turn the computer on and see, if all fans are running.

When done, post new numbers from SIW scan.
