My brother in law is having a strange problem.
First off, PC Specs:
AMD 2400+ CPU 512 RAM 80Gig hardrive
PC is about 5 years old now.
PROBLEM: So he's been running Windows 2000 for ages and FINALLY decided to upgrade to Windows XP SP2. So he got it and tried to install it. After formatting his drive, he had to try 4 times to get the install completed as it kept freezing during the install, it was NOT bluescreening though, just locking up.
Now that XP and both Service Packs are installed, the PC is still randomly locking up often. Now, to my mind, if it was a RAM problem, the pc would be BSOD'ing but its not, just locking up. Could this be a harddrive problem? Western Digital harddrive after 5 years of use.....
