Computer freezes randomly
I had Windows XP Pro - computer kept freezing randomly...different programs. Had to restart to get any response.Replaced Video card and hard drive. Plenty of power and space. Reloaded the hard drive with programs etc. and installed Vista Ultimate 64 bit. Still freezing. Small "zippp" sound, then the computer stalls. Just playing MSN games or checking email.

Help!

I'd start by running one of these memory diagnostics for at least two hours. They should run error-free as long as you let them run.
