Comp freezing.. GAH

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Heys guys, we are in the middle of a heat wave down here near adelaide and i dunno if it's the reason for my comp freezing or not.. When it gets to the windows booting screen it stops for like 10 secs at a time before the bar starts to move then when i eventualyl get to log in it's fine for maybe 30mins at max and i had my settings back to stock so i wouldnt overheat and the temps were at like 35c 38c at the max. Then it'd just freeze. Dunno i think the ram or chipset maybe getting to hot.

THe ram wouldnt be getting too hot.
It could be a software issue.

Try running a repair by booting to your XP Pro CD... Don't hit R at the first screen, hit Enter, F8, then R on the screen with the list of your installations. You might have to re-enter you COA so hopefully you either have the sticker or have it written down somewhere.

If you do need to re-enter it you might have to call MS tech support (in India) to get it to authenticate. Just tell them you replaced your motherboard and you only have that copy installed on one machine (they might ask for make and model of the computer) but they'll give you a 25-digit code that will authentic your installation.
