I'm running an AthlonXP2200+, 2 hard drives (250GB & 150GB), an audigy soundblaster card, GeForce 5200 video card, 768MB Ram.
Did you not try anything suggested? All those Programs/discs I mentioned.

Western digitals diagnostic is happening as we speak. so i would be able to put up a screen shot when i get back home.
Also, I have 2 temperature monitoring program. One shows a temp of 41 and the other software shows 50C. Why such a variance?? The hard drive was too hot, could it be for that reason the computer is freezing? My case is open, so I don't know why the hard drive heats up. I have a case fan & an open case (i.e. the side door of the case is removed).

The variance is because of software inacuraccy. If you want correct temps you will need to use a probe.
I would just average the two togethers. 45C isn't "That" bad, But HD cooling is still a good idea.
Its certainly possible that overheating causes random freezes.

Hey...It's cool now with a fan right next to it (36C) but it still froze once until now. But again, the computer has been on for about an hour only. Anyway, here's the SMART status.. I didn't know what is wanted and unwanted, so I'm pasting everything that i get under "report".
