LGKers, I need your help!
I'm using a Dell Dimension C521. Had it since May 07 (or around there).
My computer has been fine until Friday Night. It did the typical weekly virus scan at 8 PM and I had no problems with it. I stepped away from the computer at 10 PM and came back at 11 PM and it wouldn't get out of "idle" mode.
It turns out that the computer froze on me. I had to manually hold the power button to turn it off and turned it back on. But my computer keeps freezing randomly now. It can be 30 minutes. It can be 10 minutes... it's driving me insane.
I am starting to regret ordering a Dell online now... I remember in 2009, I already had to replace the motherboard.
I know my power supply is still working (I'm thinking it's freezing because it's hot?) The fan is still moving but I went out and bought a new Power Supply today. I couldn't install it because it doesn't fit in a Dell... I am going to have to return my power supply tomorrow.
Worst case scenario, I'll buy a new computer tomorrow because 3 years is long enough it seems. But could there be another problem that is causing my computer to freeze?
I didn't download anything new, no virus or spyware. All I was doing was browsing LGK like normal and just left the computer idle.
Anyone have any idea? Please help if you can.
Edit: My computer froze as soon as I submitted the thread... =\
My computer specs if it helps:
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000+ 2.60 GHz
