I'm having an issue with my PC, it freezes up after 30 mins. It was over heating due to it being caked with dust bunnies. Since I've blew it out with a can of air. I've configured the power saver settings to "never" for everything.
It still freezes... BTW, I have 3GB of RAM installed....
Can someone please help me? This is very annoying I cant get my work done at home.
-- Since you cleaned the surfaces with canned air, check your power and data cables to be sure they are properly connected (not loose).
-- The CPU/Heatsink fan is not efficiently conducting heat away from the CPU; you could reseat the heatsink after removing it, cleaning the contact surfaces with isopropyl alcohol and applying new thermal interface material, e.g., Arctic Silver 5.
-- The PSU is not putting out sufficient current to run the computer; test it and replace it if it is bad.
I'll have to agree with treefrog and that's more than likely, something loose. I'm basing this off of a similar experience I had with a laptop last year. If all else fails, you can try running the troubleshooter in Windows 7 and seeing if that will come up with anything: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/fe...
Virus, Spyware or corrupt applications can cause desktop Freezing. A poorly written program can crash the computer, causing desktop freeze followed by numerous errors. So what you need to initiate is to install a registry cleaner or smart anti-virus.
