    gday,
    i have a very annoying problem

    when i turn my computer on it will run fine for around 30 mins and then it starts freezing every 2 seconds. It becomes responsive for 2 then unresponsive for 2 seconds. This happens until i restart my computer and it fixes the problem for another 30 minutes...

    I have reinstalled windows xp but this has not fixed it.

    CPU: intel e6750
    RAM: 3GB (1GB stick + 2GB stick)
    motherboard: ASUS p5k-se
    graphics: geforce 8400 gs

    if you know a solution i would greatly appreciate your help :)

    Could be hardware problem, overheating, fans, etc.
    I see you have a 1GB ram and a 2GB Ram, did you recently add rams? and which one?
