I have Windows XP Home Edition, now that we all know that, I will start. I'll be on aim, itunes, internet, playing a game, or doing nothing at all, and my computer will freeze or restart. When i manually restart after the freeze, or after it restarts itself, when your at the load up menu for it to begin, it should take 3-10 seconds to load up and start. If I'am lucky it will do that, mine will start up after 45 seconds to 10 minutes sometimes. It will also freeze randomly, no given time or certain amount of hours it will happen. How do I fix a problem like this?

Your problem could be caused by many things, not the least of which is insufficent RAM. You may wish, however, to review the Slow Computer Troubleshooting Checklist; the steps listed may resolve the problem if it is not hardware-related:


If you have already taken these steps, then it would be important for members to know how much RAM and free disk space you have on your computer, as well as if this problem just began recently, especially if you noticed this problem after installing an application or doing something major with your computer.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
