Home-built? Laptop or desktop?
Since the system is 6 years old, has routine maintenance been done every six months?
That is, has it been regularly cleaned of dust and, at this late stage, the cpu heatsink been renewed with fresh paste?
I'd also check for BAD CAPS. Google if you do not know what that is.
need help please with my computer problem, here's the case;
My computer spec are:
- CPU Intel Core2Duo E6750 (2,66 GHz )

- Memory 4x Team 1GB pc 6400
- GPU Nvidia 9800 GT ( Pixelview brand )
- HDD WDC 1TB Sata

this computer is about 6 years old, running Windows XP SP-3, and it's
In random time, while in idle time or gaming, the computer hang, no
mouse cursor movement, no BSOD.
Therefore, usually i restarted by restart button on the computer.
When restarted and enter the boot screen, the cpu clock stated lower
than it should ( 2,66 GHz ), about 1,4 GHz. and the BIOS said that the
setting in the BIOS was wrong.
So, i enter the BIOS and do "Load setup defaults", then i change again
to my previous settings, which was the boot logo and the boot sequence
Then it run normally again. The hang of the computer happen 1x-3x at a
time, with the "Load setup defaults" done only once.
What is the problem with this computer? please help. thanks.
