Howdy all. I'm running XP on an older hard drive. Recently, it has been freezing after 10-20 minutes after starting up. I can still do everything fine, at normal speed, but it will freeze eventually.
Now, I'm talking about the caps light light won't even light up. Even though the HDD light was flashing before the freeze, it won't even light up after. It's like my computer is frozen in time.
I have booted into safe mode, where I noted that while the same thing happens, it takes noticeably longer.
As for viruses, that's also a no. I have AVG and Avast! running all the time, and they scan at different times every night. I run Spybot and AdAware regularly. I update the definitions all the time.
My specs are as follows:
8800GT with DuOrb cooler.
Intel Q6600 OCed to 3.0 GHz. I have a V1 cooler
on it. It runs nice and cool, and stable.
Intel p45 mobo.
4 GB RAM
Thermaltake HX620 PSU
