xp pro hanging after a while

  johnnyrocker 09:12 06 Jun 04

i am having difficulty working out a likely culprit, basically after about four hours or so (but not always) the machine just hangs no mouse ctr alt del nothing and reset is the only solution. appears to be more common when using yahoo board games with webcam and voice but cannot be sure as pc if left on overnight will invariably be found in the 'hung' mode(again not always) new memory and processor fitted after bad crash and reformatt 3 or 4 months ago.
tips please.

Check the internal temps with either SiSoft Sandra or Motherboard Monitor.

I suspect it may be either a heat problem or PSU problem, PSU probs can be difficult to find.
