Default Computer Crashing

Hi there,

I have a problem in that, roughly 2 minutes after i start up my computer it just freezes and i can't do anything else on it.

One of my friends told me that it may be one of my fans stopping and something just shutting down, but i have checked all of my fans and they seems to be all working.

I didnt have any problems with it until i fiddled around with one of my hard drives, as i tried to take it out, but it didnt like that ( i think i am a bit simple minded) so i am not sure if it may be to do with that?!

cant really say much else except, i am not very good with computers.

cheers for any help!

Did you now that you can't touch a Hard drive without proper protection?? Electrostatic Discharges may occur and damage the drive maybe just maybe that's your problem.

Check to make sure that you put the drive in the same way you took it out. You didnt change any jumpers did you? Make sure the data cable is in the right way. Did you put the drive back in?
