Random Freezes

Hello,

Ive started having problems with random freezing in W2K.
It tends to happen when Im using IE6 or when browsing folders of images on the HDD (my folders are set up as internet pages). The whole system will hang completely and require a hard reset.

Thought it might be a GFX card heat problem but turned out not to be in the end.

I dont want to have to reinstall everything if possible.

Anyone got any ideas / thoughts?

EDIT: Just seen Westgate's post a bit further down... same problem. If you get a solution WG, let me know!

EDIT2: Ok, having looked at more pages on the forum, this seems to be a common problem. Has anyone managed to get any solution to it?

Cheers
Mat

What's your IRQs look like? Probably a lot on 9, and list your hardware. No need to reinstall anything yet, and nothing wrong with IE6.

Nothing wrong with i.e.6 at all, you are running service pack2 I assume ? How about background apps? may well be a heat related prob, may not be, run your pc with the case open for a while, see if it takes longer to freeze.

Case open is worse than with it closed unless your blowing a big fan on it or it can't properly move air.

Here are a couple MS Knowledge base links I looked up, just copy and paste them (I'm having a simliar problem):

http://msft.kanisasolution.com/search/viewDoc.aspx?docID=KC.Q316059&url=kb;en-us;Q316059&dialogID=500821608&iterationID=1&sessionID=anonymous|500799388

(that one seems to be for IE5, but its what happens to me when I click on links.)
