PC hangs

  1. My computer hangs up after a few minutes of using. I already formatted my HDD and installed fresh OS (Win XP) but after few minutes still it hangs up. Sometimes when I tried to power on my PC I can hear the beep sound, sometimes a voice message saying "CPU dropped". I badly need your help.What happen to this?

    That could be caused by overheating. Check the CPU and motherboard temps and post them if you can. :hotbounce

    Hi
    U need to check few things for me ,
    1. When is the system freezing , on a particulr software or a game .
    2. Hard ware sspecs for the system and how much RAM is installed on the system
    **** This can be a hardware issue or an issue with windows , first lets isolate it before we jump to conclusions
    Check for error in windows, how is the system freezing , is it giving an error message , is it happening when the system is on net .
    Incase of hardware this can be a number of components , let me know all this we can fix this . It is good that the system is unning at normal temp , reformatting hard drive does not mean that the issue is not with windows , it can be a program u instaled that is running in the background in windows .
    3. Is the system running normally other wise or is it running slow
    This issue wil take time ttoo fix , u can PM me as well
