The way to check if your computer hangs is to directly after the incident go to START RUN and type eventvwr. Look in any of the 3 segments for white crosses in red dots and post what you see there.

It could also be a malware related issue. As a precaution you could do a scan using[www.safety.live.com]Microsoft Live Scan[/url]

ok,

Here is it:

1. The winxp is a new installation so I doubt so it is virus, norton 2006 full updated and scan without detected anything.
2. When it hang, I could do anything, not ctrl + alt + del, not moving mouse, not even numlock light on off and so on, have to do a hard reset.
3. I am try Sandra Engineer Vision latest to do a burn in test, so far 21 hrs still havn't hang. No over heating.
I choose all test except for DVD drive and hard disk drive (hard drive test give a read error, any know why?)
4. My friend say it could be my power extension cord faulty, possible?
