Hi NC,
Freezing could be caused by may different things but usually a heat issue.Get some canned air in radio shack,open the computer & blow all the dust out,especially on the cpu fan & power supply fan.Also,make sure the cpu fan is running steadily,not slowing down & speeding up.If it still freezes,then could be a bad power supply or a bad stick of memory.
Take care.

add more ram to your system xp will run alot smoother with at least 512mb ram ...128 is just enough to install xp but not relly enough to run it very well

Hi NC,
Take out both sticks of ram & put 1 back in & try it.If it freezes,take that stick out & put in the other.If it still freezes,try another power supply.
Take care.
