Hi, just wondered if anyone has any idea with this...my pc screwed up a couple of weeks ago, ie wouldn`t boot....no monitor..no system beeps..discovered the motherboard had gone so replaced with a gigabyte board and a new 550 watt power supply...all seemed well for a couple of weeks but now my mouse keeps freezing up while mutlitasking...ctrl-alt-del doesn`t do a thing...my dvd burning proggy stopped working can`t install or uninstall anything...does this sound virusy.? i`ve done full scans with avast anti virus but when i try scanning with McAfee...it gets half way through then freezes solid..same if i`m using a paint proggy...if i try cutting and pasting a picture again it locks up...i`ve checked all the usual ie everything in securely and so on...system is running winxp athlon xp2100 chip with a gig of ram....any help would be appreciated...btw..i tried formatting yesterday with the xp disc...it gets so far into installation the comes up with a blue screen error message.

Can you post the error message

have you tried system restore
uninstalled new progs
checked for conflics
run it in safe mode
sorry if it sounds to obvious

Have you checked for any faults in device manager.

On reading your post again, you say you installed a new mobo, did you do a clean re-install of windows as XP will be locked to your old mobo.

To Joelle the system restore has strangely been turned off....and will not turn back on which makes me think it could be a virus.

And alan, yes m8 i have checked in device manager...everything seems fine..

Yes alan i did a full Clean Install because i had done a major hardware upgrade.
