**The computer seems to freeze a lot, sometimes it gets lines going through the screen, and recently the screen would turn black for 1 second, and then go back to the desktop for about 5 seconds, then turn black again, and it kept repeating this process until I reset. I previously had Windows 98 on it, and it did the same thing. I don't know what the problems is, and I don't know how to find out what the problem is. I just reformatted, I did the extended memory check, but thats about it. Does anyone have any clues on what the problem is... or any ideas of how to find the problem?

Thank you

What power supply are you using? It sounds like either your PSU is crapping out, and it just isn't up to snuff.

But I could be wrong.
