    Check to make sure that all fans are running and that there is no dust or anything else impeding air flow. Does it run better after being allowed to cool?

    How long has this been happening? Did it start suddenly or gradually?

    If heat does not seem to be the problem, test RAM.

    MemScope (Floppy and CD images.)
    Roadkil's RAM Test
    Microsoft Memory Test (floppy or CD ISO image)
    Memtest86

    If you have enough memory sticks, you can test them by removing one at a time and see if the problem disappears.

    If you are running Vista, tap F8 on boot and choose the memory diagnostic, or if you can boot up, go to Start > Search and type:

    mdsched.exe

    Choose to run a memory diagnostic on next boot. Or, you can boot from the DVD and run it from there.

    done. done and done. :)
    its not a overheating problem. because it will do it even when i first log in sometimes. it just does it randomely.
    computer is less that 6 months old. i've tried isolating all software to see if that is the issue. didn't help.
    Memory is fine.
    ran all diagnostics.
    here are specs

    toshiba windows 7
    AMD turion 2 P520 dual -core processor 2.3 ghz
    ram 4.00 gb
    64 bit operating system

    I think i have narrowed it down to this..
    when i go to my pictures to upload. as i am scrolling through them to find the onei want to upload it freezes.
    this happens anytime i try to upload a picture to anywhere.
