Problem With XP OS

  1. I am running windows xp. Recently it began to randomly freeze up on me. I ran my virus scans and it just kept freezing up. I did system restore and it didn't help. I got fed up with it and tried to reinstall windows. During formatting, It froze at 96%. I tried a million times to fully format it but it kept freezing. Finally i just did a quick format and had no problem. On restart, it takes longer than normal to load windows. I get no errors and nothing on any scans. But now my computer still freezes randomly. I would appreciate anyone who could help with this annoying problem.


    Thank you.

    Could be one thing or a combination of problems. you need to run some tests on the ram and case temperatures (if it's a desktop) Here is the link for Memtest. Let it run overnight and see what it comes up with. Also use Speedfan to see what the temps are.
