    well i am using my computer normally and then it freezes after about an hour or two.
    then when i turn it off and turn it back on again the screen is black and nothing seems to be happening

    any ideas on what could be causing it to freeze

    i have already scanned for viruses
    cleaned up the registry
    and i am defraging it now

    i did change the fan could this be the cause of the trouble?

    Cleaning up the Registry? Please explain;

    What AV and Anti malware have you got?

    You say you changed the fan... What fan didi you change?

    If you could also post the Spec of your Machine, that would help too.

    Regards.

    Neb..

    What piece of software did you scan the registry with??

    Download Malwarebytes. <<click < link < to < begin < download<<

    Install it, update it, Restart your computer and then do a quick scan with it, and post the log Here.

    Did your old fan stop working all together or did you just want to Rid of the stock fan?

    Sounds like maybe something maybe overheating.....when you turn it back on do the fans come on........

    And if you wait awhile and restart does it work OK?

    Your temps seem to be ok...

    Can you please tell what you Scanned your Registry with, As This is quite important.

    Good so you had some infected items, this isnt uncommon.
    You could Update malware bytes once again and do Another quick scan. (if the scan is clean you dont need to post the log)

    When you Defraged your system did it take long?

    As in "Free registry Fix" ?

    I cannot express to enough how dangerous it is to install software that offers to Fix, Optimize or Clean your Registry.
    There is no one piece of software capable of doing this.
    The ads you see around google are simply scams, there is no Proof that they have any positive effects on any registry, infact they are VERY capable of doin the opposite.

    I tested a few of these "products" I ran Back to Back scans with one imparticular one called "Regg Cure".

    1st scan: 1642 (aprox) Errors.
    2nd scan: 543 (aprox Errors.
    3rd scan: 645 (aprox) Errors.

    you can see the trend here.........

    Cleaning a registry with any of these pieces of software would be like tryin to clean a carpark with a toothbrush.

    I could RANT on about Reg Fixers and Cures all day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Are you a Firefox user?

    Install this add-on to your Browser its called WOT.

    This addon may help you to steer clear of these scams in the future.

    Give it a try and just google the software you used on your registry,

    Did you Update Malwarebytes and do another quick scan..?
    If you didnt, uninstall the registry "fixing" software and then do the scan.
