Please help / Computer freezes up
My computer is getting on my nerves. I have had a problem with random freeze ups for a few months now and don't know what it is. I'll be doing something (web searching, opening a progrm like my documents.....) and all of a sudden my mouse dont move no more and my keyboard doesn't work. So I have to reset my computer manually. But..sometimes during the reboot (or just starting it up) It will get stuck at the Motherboard logo screen and I'll have to restart it again manually untill it follows thru to Windows login screen. And then repeat all over again.
I clean my computer every month, so it doesn't get all clogged up with dust. I updated my Norton, Spybot and Ad-Aware, turned off system restore, rebooted into Safe Mode and ran all my system scans. It found a few minor things and i took care of them. Then I restarted back into windows, turned system restore back on and recorded a new restore point. I went into Startup and closed out all my Startup items. I changed my keyboard and mouse. And disconnected my CD and DVD drives, my modem and my floppy. Nothing seems to have helped yet.
I have noticed that my CPU usage seems to jump up pretty high on simple procedures. Like....Opening Internet Explorer - 52%, Starting a song from my music - 82%, Clicking on my favorites - 65%. I don't know if that is normal or not, but I thought I'd bring it up.
Anyone have any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
