Dell Dimension 4450 Penttuim 4 at 2.66GHz, 64MB GeForce4 MX Grapic card, do not know model of motherboard, 80GB ULTA ATA/100 Hard Drive, 4XDVD+R/RW CD-RW combination drive, 3.5 years old
Computer randomly stops working for 1 or 2 seconds. Mouse curser freezes (then jumps to a new position if I moved the mouse during pause), if video or audio is playing the sound reverebs on a note for the lenght of the computer pause, and if you are typing it stops (no input if accepted from keyboard).
May this be a Processor or Motherboard problem?
Where do I start.
So far I have used Norton SystemWorks, Dell Diagnostics, and 2 other diagnostic software that specificly checks processor and motherboard fuctionality (one even places stress on the processor). These have found nothing.
