Default computer still freezing without video card.

I took out the video card and uninstalled the drivers I got integrated graphics back. The computer is still freezing all fans are working properly as far as I know. I was wondering since we ruled out fans and video card can the hard drive be going? The computer is only 4 months old.

yes its a possibility and most likely also try and barebone your computer (only the neccisary parts) and boot it. then add the hard drive and so on if it freezes again when the hard drive is in then its the hard drive. use some deductive logic and this should be a piece of cake

Yeah the CD cost is rediculous. Home as restrictive as it is, it's bull that anyone would pay those prices for that. Pro is even worst price wise but at least it allows you more control over your system.

The purpose of doing that is to figure out what the problem is. I dont know what the purpose pulling out the HD since he can only really test the Integrated Graphics in Windows where he can play games/applications where it would be used.

I know what he means, I bareboned mine when my friend fried my computer (touched a thermal diode to the CPU prongs) and found that most the parts were ok, except for the CPU and motherboard, memory, videocard, and HD's survived the shock.

Btw, about the prices of Windows XP. You can buy a single license of windows XP Pro for 77 dollars. I dont know where the heck you guys are shopping for your stuff, definately dont go to best buy or comp usa for it. Retail cranks up the price over a hundred bucks.
