Overheating? Freezing?

Hi all,

Not sure if this is the proper place to ask.

I got an annoying problem.
My computer occasionally locks up and freezes. Then when I reboot sometimes it gets stuck at the Windows XP loading screen and loads forever with no stop.
I initially thought I had some unknown virus and completely reinstalled Windows XP Pro fresh.

However its still happening making me think that its an overheating issue of sorts. Could that be the case?
My Core temps are 40 and 48ish respectively. Is that considered too hot?

Or is my Ram getting too hot? Or do I have some sort of messed up hard drive?

My specs are:
Windows XP Pro 32
Amd athlon 64 x2 6000
2GB DDR2 800
Geforce 8600 GT

It'd be great if you guys could give me some advice.

  1. Ok quick update those temps were when I first restarted

    After a bit of use my temps are at 65 - 70ish underload

    Is that normal or abnormal?
