I bought a Gateway computer in the winter of 2001 I believe and all I know is that it's AMD 1100. It came with windows millenium installed and really did not like that so when windows xp came out, I spent the money and installed it on my PC and it's been okay to this day. Recently the system started to freeze on me in the middle of what I was doing. Hard boot was the only solution to this point and even then it would literaly take about 10 times to boot properly. I thought my hard drive was getting all cluttered so I formatted the hard drive with no complications but as sson as I was done it started freezing on me again. I went ahead and removed, one at a time, all the hardware I had and trying to boot between each of them and nothing happened. I did this until all I had was the video card and one slip of ram. I tried a different video card and slip of ram and still nothing. Do you think I ned an upgrade of some sort for my cpu or my cpu shot or is it the motherboard???

it sounds if your problem is either related to heat or motherboard failure

if its motherboard failure, the capacators will show signs of being defective///
they would most likely be leaking brown rusty stuff....the capacators are the little metal "cans" on your mobo

if thats not the case then dust the heatsink out using an air compressor or some canned air..
