Running windows XP Home, Asus MB and Athlon CPU. When I run the computer, the system locks up after anywhere from 5-10 minutes. The CPU temp seems fine, the fans are running at max. There is, however, the faint smell of something that got too hot at one point. When I try to run system restore, it runs for 2-5 minutes but locks up before it can complete the restore. I had a problem with my primary drive last year, I think the little whatz-it in the outside bottom was bad because the disk itself tested as okay, but when I replaced it all my problems went away. Is it possible that the same thing is causing this latest problem?

Thanks!

Pretty hard to tell. Check inside for bad capacitors and see if you can isolate anything. Could just be bad memory.
