Sorry about the lang.. i'm not really good in english but as i've mentioned, i've bought a new harddisk and installed it with windows xp but my computer will hang halfway when i use it for a long period of time, e.g half a day... so i was thinking whether there are anyway to solve the problem because i've read it maybe the cpu which is causing the problem... is this post ok??

Try downloading Everest Home Edition (www.lavalys.com).

I have the same CPU. I took the control of the fan out of the bios hands (speedfan), replaced the fan with one of the cheapest on the marked (Arctic cooling's freezer 7), and reduced the cpu temp by 10c-15c.

I wrote a bit about your problem in another forum. Check out mushroomcloud's entries
