I am seriously about to throw the damn computer out the window.

I am running an older intel Pentium cpu on a 478 socket. I think its p4. Anyways, I use the computer primarily as a security DVR. As of late its been freezing up on me. I have changed the mobo, added memory, graphics card, and even the PSU. Still freezes. For awhile I had an ati driver error and I suspected it was the graphics drivers, but I reinstalled them and it still freezes. I looked at the event history and there is no error event. Ran mem check and it seemed to be fine. Ran defrags for both HDD, memory, and registry. Temp is always around 35-40 degrees C.

Any other ideas on what it could be? I don't want to have to plop down another $400 for a new computer.

What do you mean it seems fine? How did you go about the testing? Have you tried checking this on safemode first or running a diagnostic test on the hard drive itself?
