  1. i got new computer (buy it last week), details from everest:
    motherboard: g31 (Motherboard ID 09/05/2008-G31-ICH7-6A89OG05C-00)
    what mean the date here on my g31?
    memory: 1 GB hynex (Hynix HYMP112U64CP8-S6)
    HD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB ST3500410AS

    when its freeze mostly it realse by it self after 1 mins or so, and while its freeze i can only "alt+ctrl+delete" just to open the taskbar, not to click on something there.
    and i can press on the ctrl+esc or the 1 button on the keyboard that do the same.
    i can move the mouse, but cant click on nothing.

    thats about it, any ideas what goin on? or any software that can run a test on my PC?
    thanks guys!!

    cidev power supply. p4-500W.
    i use WINXP SP3, custom edition.
    the video card...mm its on board, could be Intel GMA 3100??? (i found it on everest -> display -> pci / agp video.
    what you mean by system airflow? about the fan?
    i have 2 fans , 1 of them on the processor.

    about my problem look.... for exemple now i wanted to click alt+tab to get to the everest window and its stuck, only when i click alt+esc its release, if i click without the alt+tab , directly on the window i want its ok.
    and its keeps freeze when i click alt+tab again and again (just as i write you here i try it again and again)
    i dont remember if all the time my PC froze it was when i click alt+tab...but ill try to put attention.

    this problem i told you about alt+tab its keep doing it , but only while im in the IE7 and click alt+tab to get to another window (even not ie7 window).
    but when im in other windows i can make alt+tab without problem.
    maybe its something.....
