Hey, my mates computer for no apparent reason locks up and needs to be rebooted at random intervals whether it's being used or not, it even seems to happen before windows is loaded, I figured it was some kind of hardware failure, so I used a program from simmtester.com to check the memory and found no problems. I formated the harddrive and reinstalled windows 98 (yeah I know this is an xp forum)

It's a celeron 800, with onboard video and only 64MB ram.

check all your cables to make sure none are partially in/out or make sure none of them are faulty

cables are fine, just updated bios, still freezing, although 45 is meant to be quite high for a celeron

The chip is going into Historesis, that's the level before it actually fries itself, after all it is a celeron. another 5 to ten degrees it will fry itself....your celeron should sit between 35 and 39 degrees celcius.

check the fan rpm. and the box temp.

i used to have trouble with celerons doing what you mentioned all the time

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
