Lately My computer has been seizing up and I would like some direction in figuring out what the problem is. When it freezes, everything becomes unresponsive except the mouse which works fine and it does not at any point go to BSOD. I thought maybe explorer was crashing so I cleaned it up by undoing changes with spywareBlaster's system snapshot and did a system restore; neither procedure worked. Also, Malwarebytes and AVG scans produced clean scans. I am looking for some direction as to what is the most likely cause of this and what I should test next.

Here's the rather old, dilapidated machine I'm working with:

CPU: (939-pin) AMD Athlon64 3500+
MOTHERBOARD: (Sckt939)Gigabyte GA-K8N Ultra-SLI nForce4 Ultra SLI Chipset Dual PCIE
MEMORY: 1024 MB Corsair XMS High Performance Memory
VIDEO: NVIDIA Geforce 7800 GT 256MB 16X PCI Express Video Card
HDDs: Hitachi 160GB 7200RPM Serial ATA 150 8MB Cache/Western Digital 500GB
OS: Windows XP Version 5.1 SP3

Thanks in Advance for your Help!

First suspect would be overheating, second would be PSU, third would be hard drive.

Let's try this.

Download/install BlueScreenView, http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html .

Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file.

When scanning is done, Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items.

Save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content and paste it into your next reply.

How much free space on that hard drive for each partition...how large is Windows partition?

Here's the BSOD report but none of these crashes are recent. How can I determine my partition sizes?

<<How can I determine my partition sizes?>>

Go to My Computer. View/Details. You should see Size and Free Space data for each partition.

Local Disk (C:) (has windows installation): Total Size - 149GB Free Space - 49.5GB
New Volume (G:) : Total Size - 298GB Free Space - 89GB

Not Long ago I had problems with overheating. In that case my computer was freezing totally then shutting down. I resolved the problem by cleaning out the dust and now my computer is running with the side of the case off and having a fan blow air in. It has been running fine with that ghetto rigged solution until now. That happened on the first of February so it hasn't had time to collect dust since

Does that mean...that you've checked the temperatures lately?

I dunno really. My case has a temp display but I don't know if its giving me the temp of the core, the case, or just the temperature of the room.
The program suggested in your previous post is giving a low of 42degrees and a high of 67degrees for what its worth.

oh and my case also has a fan speed controller and they're turned all the way up.

Lately My computer has been seizing up ... AVG

My first thought is that AVG may be the culprit. What version of AVG are you using, and what virus database update is currently being used? Check for updates, and install the latest database updates. Does the issue persist?

Are you by any chance using the ZoneAlarm firewall? Your issue may (or may not) be related to the issue in the following link on the AVG Free Forums:
Update Freezes Computer

I have been experiencing the same (or very similar) symptoms recently (over the last week approximately, on one out of 3 computers running AVG Free 2011) and am currently investigating the matter, with AVG Free 2011 being my main suspect. I am still persisting with AVG in an attempt to positively define the cause of the issue, and resisting the temptation to un-install AVG and use some other antivirus software.

If overheating of either CPU or GPU is ruled out by monitoring the temperatures within your system, then you may wish to explore the following option?

One possible option for you to try, if the issue persists, would be to un-install AVG.
Use the following link and follow the instructions, including the use of the AVG Remover Tool:
If You Have Trouble Installing/Uninstalling/Updating AVG: AVG 2011 + 9.0+8.x Uninstall / Re-Install Instructions

Please let us know the result of un-installing AVG and whether or not it resolved the issue you are having with the system "seizing up".

Also some drivers can also be the source of causing computers to freeze up. Especially ones that monitor network packets. An example of this is 'Replay Media Catcher' which monitors network traffic for video streams/files through an unsigned driver. I would constantly get freezing and locking up behaviour on my computer.

Have you installed any software lately that are related to the Internet such a video downloaders, download managers, etc. I've had this problem before and fixed it by unistalling the software.

That temperature range looks a lot like that of the CPU.

You said: "now my computer is running with the side of the case off and having a fan blow air in"
The reported temperature of 67°C is too high for your system. The cooling system is not functioning adequately. I would expect temperatures to not rise much above 50°C under most conditions if the cooling system was functioning correctly. It is also possible that the cut-off temperature ... the temperature at which your system will automatically shut down as a safety measure ... may be as low as 70°C.

You should continue to focus on the CPU temperature as the most likely cause of your problem.

You may also wish to check out the operating temperatures of your video card, which if overheating will also cause the system all sorts of problems. Use the following link to download GPU-Z to monitor the graphics card processor temperature:

No, that is not the case.

As I said previously: "If overheating of either CPU or GPU is ruled out by monitoring the temperatures within your system, then you may wish to explore the following ...", namely that AVG may be causing the "computer freezing" problem.

I agree with hamluis's first suggestion "First suspect would be overheating ... "

Following that post by hamluis, you reported that your system was indeed subject to an over-heating issue. The logical first step would be to rule out this overheating issue as a possible cause of your "computer freezing" issue by properly monitoring your CPU temps (and your GPU temps) to either confirm or refute the overheating issue. If you do in fact have an overheating issue, then it should be fixed. This can be achieved and the results tested, and overheating can be then ruled out as a possible cause of your "computer freezing" issue. At that stage I would then recommend that we pursue the possible cause of the "computer freezing" issue by considering AVG as a possible cause.


What temperature ranges are being reported for your CPU and GPU ?

Speccy isn't working. It either displays error messages for most parts of the computer or it gets all the information for everything except the HHD and just keeps Analyzing the HDD indefinitely. (let it run 15min) My computer really chuggs when speccy is running

Speccy isn't working.

That's interesting.

You have two hard drives: "HDDs: Hitachi 160GB 7200RPM Serial ATA 150 8MB Cache/Western Digital 500GB"
One of the two hard drives may be giving you some trouble?

What do you have on each of the Hitachi and WD hard drives? Can you disconnect one of them if it contains only data and run the system with only the one hard drive attached?

Are you still experiencing "computer freezing" or any other issues?
