Having problems with your Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop ?

Dell Dimension 2400 Freezes

\015 Dimension 2400, my name is Jarrod, Happens durin games, during idle after a while, and watchin video's. I knew it was video and replaced the card.\015\012\015\012I have replaced my video card with a PCI slot card that a frys representitive suggested. Originally the video card was the problem and i fixed it. For a long time i had no problem(nearly a year). After i moved my Comp to my new location it has the problem again. I have reseeded the new vid card and reseeded everything else as well just in case. I defraged, ran virus and spyware scans even dumped many unused programs and such. It seems it could be an overheating problem but the fans work fine and i have left the case open and everything. I put an extra fan in too to see if it could be. Anyways if you have any ideas Please let me know. My email is \015\012\015\[email protected]\015\012\015\012or simply post me back :) ty\015

\015\012I suggest you check your memory using this ms software
\015\012http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp
\015\012or if you want some ms independency
\015\012use this one
\015\012http://www.memtest86.com/
\015\012or better yet take your memory stick(s) out and just put a new memory stick and check if how the system performance changes.
\015\012
\015\012let either test run overnight and see if some memory fault can be detected as some of those intermittent freezing problems are related with memory.

\015\0121. don't leave the case open.. that doesn't make the system run cooler... keep things closed, undust and keep making sure your fans are working.. if it's an overheating problem your cpu just shuts the sytem down or starts running slower if (throttling is avaliable in *********** board/bios)
\015\0122. when you reseated everything did you watch for ESD?.. esd could cause issues with internal components and if they're minor it could be translated into intermittent problems associated with some tiny component in your motherboad.

\015\012In my experience intermittent freezing problems are quite hard to diagnosed and you need to keep swapping things in an out to come to a certainty on failing componets..
