acer aspire t-160 with XP home edition

Hello, I am having a problem with the computer locking up all the time. I have replaced the power supply, and the SATA drive, and reformatted to factory new twice. still locks up, and sometimes it just reboots, any help here will be greatly appreciated, I have had no luck with ACER support, I gave them the serial number four times and they say it is not the correct number, it is the number that they have on the bar code label. hope to hear from someone about this problem. thanks.

Sorry, the computer is a desktop, I don't know how I messed that up.

Sounds like it needs repair.

What we find is that repairs can exceed replacement costs. So get a quote from the place that repairs your machines and then shop around.
