I have brand new install of Win XP Pro 32bit SP3.

The issue is that it hangs from time to time and hardcore reset is required to get it going again.

There is no apparent reason for it. It just stops working, does not take any input from keyboard or mouse.

My Device Manager does not show any issues with my hardware and all the drivers seem to be up to speed.

It started doing this right after installation so I am thinking it is not software added recently.

Any ideas what I should do next?

Any software utility to scan for issues?

There are number of things you can try.

 

chkdsk /r    to check for any bad sectors on the drive

 

sfc /scannow    to check for any corrupted system files

 

Seatools for Windows to check the hard drive for errors

 

Memtest+ for a memory check. Run it for 6 passes minimum and best overnight.

I did scan my HDD with Seatools for dos and it seems that there was some bad sectors.

I replaced with another drive which did not show any issues when scanned with Seatools and it seems OK now but in my Device manager I have some issues showing with my devices.

Here are device ids:

PCI\VEN_4444&DEV_0016&SUBSYS_4B661043&REV_01\4&1AF1648C&0&20F0
PCI\VEN_14F1&DEV_2F20&SUBSYS_200014F1&REV_00\4&1AF1648C&0&18F0
ACPI\AWY0001\2&DABA3FF&0
 
I know one is graphic card, the other one is modem and the last one I don't know.
The issue is that I can not find drivers for these anywhere.
Could anyone point me to place where I could find these drivers?
Thank you.

The last is part of the chipset driver. What is the make and model of the computer.

So it has been few weeks and I thought my problems are gone, but now  they creeped back in again.

My desktop still hangs from time to time. 

I did:

chkdsk /r

Seatools for windows

Memtest+

 

and none of them shows any errors

 

When I do sfc /scannow it tells me that the disk I have inserted is not the same as the installation disk which is absolutely not right since this is the only win xp disk I have.

 

Is there any other tests I can run to pinpoint the issue?

I really hope I can rung this desktop as win xp one.
