  waksh 09:08 28 Dec 07


My PC freezes when i turn it on, i have a windows xp advent computer and when you turn on the pc the first picture is the advent logo that appears then it freezes at that point. A few days ago I had cleaned out the hard drive due to it overheating because of dust, and i had done a full system recovery, it had worked fine after that, its just today its just froze

Please Help

Just check that the air vents at the back of the computer are free from dust and fluff.If so inside of computer will need cleaning also.

I have cleaned everything, inside and out, its all free from dust

check you did not dislodge the memory modules or any leads etc inside the computer

Ive finally checked it through, it was my fault, i left a usb stick in the hard drive, i took it out and it worked fine after that, thanks for all your help
