My desktop PC is having problems. Its 3 or 4 years old and is an EI-System E302 running XP Home 32-bit.
It will be working perfectly, then it will just die. There is a 5 second gap between the computer completely freezing before the power is cut and it will then go back to start up. If I'm listening to music it will jam on a piece of music. It doesn't shut down just dies then starts up again.
I have changed the RAM, and it now has 2GB instead of the 1 that was there to start with. It still does it.
I have tried 2 different hard drives, all with different OSs on, still does it.
I have disconnected everything except keyboard, mouse and monitor, still does it.
Done virus scans from AVG and Radialpoint - Nothing come up
All drivers have been updated, still does it.
Tried all software and it still does it.
Its not a problem with overheating. It is set to beep when it gets very hot, and it has only done that once.
Since the computer started doing this, on startup there is a very loud high pitch buzz which will last for a minute or 2, then it goes back to normal.
There is nothing that i have done that always kills it, but there are some things i do that are more likely to kill it. This is usually leaving it on without touching it for more than 10 mins, or anything that uses flash.
Thats all i can think of to tell you at the min. Ask if you want any more info or you want me to try something.
