    You already re-installed XP and still get these freezes?

    I would do the following shotgun approach:

    1. Update bios
    2. Update chipset drivers and ALL other hardware drivers
    3. Run www.memtest.org on my memory to see if my ram is failing
    4. Run a hard drive diagnosis program on the HDD to test it (you can usually get one from your HDD maker's website

    Also, right click on "my computer" then "manage" then "event viewer" and see what kinds of errors are being reported to try and get some hints as to what is causing the freezes in there.

    Oh, and welcome to Techspot!
