I went to have a look at a pc yesterday that was repeatedly freezing, sometimes in windows, sometimes during boot up. I carried out some checks on the hard drive and the memory but all passed without a problem, I then repartitioned and reformatted the hard drive and reloaded Windows XP home and other software. It appeared that everything was working fine until this morninh wjen the old freezing problem was back, it was often taking 5/6 reboots before it would finally boot into windows. Anyone any suggestions what I should check next? The pc has an Athlon xp 2400 processor, 1GB memory, Leadtek motherboard, 80GB IMB hard drive and is about 7 years old.
