Hey guys. So I have a custom built computer that I've had for years and it's been freezing up lately. I did a full format and windows install and it would load to the windows destkop, work for a couple minutes and then completely freeze. I tried different operating systems and still did the same thing. I thought it was fhe hard drive so I got a new one and tried the install again and it is still freezing. I also tried different ram and did not work either. What could the possible issues be? Is there a bootable hardware scanner to diagnose any issues?

Thanks guys!

Im thinking the same thing.
Is the CPU fan clean and spinning properly?
Is the heat sink clean?
In the beginning there was the command line.
