Can anyone help in finding the problem with my computer? It freezes at random. The memory has been fully checked and found ok. I have enough for the things I do with the machine (768 meg). I cannot think what might be causing it. Windows 2000pro has been installed and reinstalled 3 times but the freezing still occurs even sometimes on bootup. I have tried 5 times to visit the motherboard site (Asus) but each time it freezes almost straight away. I have no viruses or dodgy programs on board. I can rarely read more than a couple of Emails without a lockup. I am coming to the conclusion that it is a motherboard problem but I could be wrong. I visited the microsoft knowledge base but every example had a definite cause, mine doesn't, I would be most grateful if someone could help.

Thank's for answering. I use AVG antivirus and keep it up to date. How do I check for abnormal CPU operation? It seems either a CPU or motherboard issue everything else has been replaced.

Try a memory test, Mem86 Stand alone memory test. A bad memory module will product these results.
Also check you Event Viewer in the Administrative Tools. See if you have a error message or two.

What are the voltage readings, especially the 3.5 rail? You can either view these in the BIOS, or you can download Everest Home Edition, it is free and can be downloaded here.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
