I am having a problem with my computer. Lately my computer has been randomly freezing after a couple of hours. I checked for viruses and spyware and it came back clean. Inside my computer is totally dust-free. My memory is OK i have 192 mb. I tried swapping both pieces but prob. still occurs. I do not know what to do. My factory installed fan works properly. I was thinking of adding one more to see if that would fix the problem. I really think my system is overheating because I only have one fan not including my power supply one. Although I have noticed that my vid card has been heating up a lot. When i touch it, it feels hot. Could that be the problem? HELP!!! When I go into Everest to check my temps It shows me the temp for my WDC Disk Drive and it is at 117oF or 46oC. Is that bad? I took the side panel off my computer so it could get some air. SOMEONE HELP FAST!!!

Comp Specs-
Compaq 5002US
Windows Xp Pro- No SERVICE PACK
Zone Alarm Firewall Installed
Antivirus software installed
192 Mb of Ram
Nvidia Vanta LT 8 Mb video card
AMD DURON PROCESSOR 800 MHz
36462 MB FREE

Running anything when it freezes?.. Or will it freeze even if your not there?
That 192 RAM is kinda low for XP, I know it says 64 minimum, and 128 or better..

And an 8MB vid card!!!! Could be that.. Can't handle whats going on..
