XP hangs every X minutes


OSNN Senior Addict
I have a Pc running XP Home SP1.
I have nothing special running @ startup but every 5 to 10 minutes my windows hangs for 10 - 30 seconds....

Someone knows something about this ?
had this problem also for a while. for me it turned out to be a loose IDE cable to my CD-Drive. after i openend my case and put the cable back tight and securer it worked perfect. so check for any loose cables in your pc
i hadnt touched mine for months and still the cable was loose, dont have any other suggestions, but check for virusses to be sure
Yeah the CD Drive spin-up time can sometimes cause this to happen, but 5 to 10 seconds sounds a little high.

What happens when it freezes - as in what were you doing immediately before it hangs?
