Default Comp Is Crazy!

Ok comp used to run super, now all of a sudden its like if I open a video and let it play for like 30 seconds, or if I run a game and play it for a few seconds. In the middle of it, it will just FREEZE and I mean FREEZE I can't control alt delete it or anything, I have to hard shut down the computer and then restart Its like all I can do is look at my wallpaper without my computer freezing and its not a bad computer... Also It is not a heat problem I have had a house fan on it for a while seeing if it helped. It doesn't. I have even turned the air im my house to 70 degrees dont help at all. I have dont 0 upgrades too. It just started happening...

albatron k400 8x
512ram pc2700
256ram pc2100

Overheat maybe. 70 degrees celcius in your house? Wow, it's an oven. Unless that's fahrenheit... If not heat issue, check gfx card.

Reformat. 99.9% chance that reformatting it will fix the problem.
