I just installed a linksys network in my apartment (Linksys WRT54GS router, and a Linksys USB G network adapter), and suddenly I am having seemingly random freezes. Nothing works- no ctrl-alt-del, no mouse. The little green LED won't even toggle for cap lock. The only way to shut down is to hold down the power button (which gives me a shiver every time I do it). If I am playing music, the sound will suddenly and completly stop (no skipping or constant tone etc.). I think, although I am not possitive, that it only happens when I am online. I have run spybot and Nod32 several times, even in safe mode, but it doesn't help. I have also run several programs such as TuneUp utilites 2004 to no avail. Any insight as to what might be going on would be greatly appreciated.

Much thanks.
~Brandon.

Ok, all done. Unfortunatly, there is no immediate way to find out if it worked or not, so I will just have to wait and see. If there are any more problems I will post them here.
Thanks again,
~Brandon.

it look like you have a heat problem open the case and check that all fans are working
and work with the case open for a 5 min and re check the temp and please clear all the dust inside the pc as that is number one killer for pc hardware

Well, it has frozen up on me since, but not as frequently and only under high-stress conditions (usually involving my video card). This leads me to assume it was and still is a heat problem. I put an outside fan blowing upwards right behind my comp, and that seems to be making it at least somwhat better.
