computer freezing

Postby [M4D]FULL_METAL on Fri Mar 16, 2012 12:52 am

My computer has been freezing lately after being on for 10-15mins, what would be causing that? If I leave it on, it start's making a constant beep

A good start is giving it a good clean... take the fans off if they're removable, or somehow pick the fur/dust out of them.

Most times the problem is the gunk wont let the heat out.

1st thing to check is that your PC is not overheating. Remove the fan and heatsink from on top of the CPU and make sure that the heatsink is free from dust/fluff . Make sure all the fans are spinning properly, and are not hindered by a loose cable within the chassis.
Reseat each of the memory modules to make sure that they are seated correctly and have not risen up slightly in the slot.
Also make sure that the keys on your keyboard don't get stuck down.
Make sure you remove the power cable from the PC before removing anything.
Try that
