  1. my computer freezes up during start-up. to solve the problem, i reformatted my pc, but it still freezes. i removed the dedicated VGA to see if it's the one causing the problem, but to no avail. PC still freezes and sometimes, when it loads, it freezes and screen turns green,black, and sometimes blue. IS this a hardware problem? how can i fix this?

    MOBO:ASUS M4A78LT-M LE
    RAM: 2GB
    HDD: 300Gb
    Processor: Athlon phenom II 965
    OS : winxp pro

    actions taken but didn't solve the problem:

    1. installed and run CCcleaner and Registry Easy
    2. removed dedicated VGA (geforce 9500)
    3. reinstalled OS
    4. updated graphics drivers.

    can anyone help??

    Try another power supply...

    How many Watts you have on your power supply? Indeed you could try a different brand supply or at least one with more wattage.
    Also you should run a diagnostics on your hardware outside of Windows.

    You should still try another power supply before doing anything else
