Having problems with your Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop ?

My computer just freezes anytime it wants to and blue streaks appear on the monitor. There is no way to get back onto the computer without manually shutting it down. then the computer runs again for a while until it decides to do it again.

Answers :

It may be getting hot. Open the left side panel and look for dust on the fans and CPU. You can clean it out with a can of compressed air that you can buy at any store that sells electronics. Just be careful not to knock any components off. Do this with the system turned off. Make sure your monitor cables are connected securely.
