There're different things you can try (try in order):
1. virus/spyware: have your antivirus and anti-malware programs updated and run deep scans if possible or do several scans going deeper everytime in terms of location your virus/antimalware can search for threats. do the cleaning in safe mode. are you getting the freeze up condition in safemode as well??
2. memory - test memory and replace and test memory sticks one at a time (if you have more than one memory sticks)
3. some pci card or installed adapter may not be working properly (test your hardware with a software called SANDRA from sisoft.
4. something else on the motherboard - when there's hardware malfunctioning intermittently you may have to replace your motherboard.

freeze ups are hard to diagnosed and to isolate. you may also want to post specifically when you see the freeze up condition appear (what were/are you doing before the computer freeze up) that may tell us more about where the problem lies.

First try alt+control+delete option if u can reach on task manager. close all application from task manager and it should be good to go.

it might be number of reasons why your computer are freezing. but make sure about ur cpu fan if its stop working or not cooling your system 's processor. This fan is located on top of your processor.
that would be the worst one coz it could fry up ur processor.

Some other reasons may be faulty ram, any new hardware changes etc.
but next time please explain your situation little more thouroughly so its easy for anybody here to help you ..
Good luck !!!

Hitachi How To


The use of desktop icons has served to simplify opening and using programs in Microsoft Windows.
With a simple click of the mouse, an entire program can be opened.
Unfortunately those desktop icons can also be deleted, sometimes accidentally or sometimes by the desktop cleaning utility that runs in Windows, but there is a simple process to recover desktop icons.
Just follow these steps.

Click it without a ticket.
To restore lost desktop icons, first place your mouse anywhere in a blank area on your desktop. Once you have placed your cursor in an unused area of the desktop, right click.
Check the pop up.
Once you have right-clicked your mouse in the unused area of your desktop you will receive a pop up menu or prompt.
Choose "Properties" by left clicking it with your mouse.


Grab that tab. Once you have clicked on "Properties" you will receive a dialog box.
Click on the tab labeled "Desktop."

Customize it.
Once you have clicked the "Desktop" tab choose "Customize Desktop" which will prompt another dialog box to open.
From there click on the "General" tab.

Restore order.
After you have clicked the "General" tab you will see a list of icons.
Simply choose the icons you want restored or placed on the desktop and then click "OK."
That's it.
You have now successfully restored your desktop icons.

Installing Ubuntu Server on Dell Dimension 2400?


Step 1:
The Ubuntu Linux operating system is available either with or without a desktop environment. The version with the desktop environment is meant for personal use and includes word processing, email and graphic editing software. The version without the desktop environment is called "Ubuntu Server." The server version does not come with any graphical software or productivity software. There are three different desktop environments available for the Ubuntu operating system. The default is the Gnome desktop. The other two are the KDE and the XFCE desktop environments.

Log into the server. Type the command "sudo apt-get update" to update the list of software packages available. Type the command "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop" to install the Gnome desktop. Type the command "sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop" to install the XFCE desktop. Type the command "sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop" to install the KDE desktop. Type the command "sudo reboot" to reboot the server. Ubuntu Linux Tutorials,Howtos,Tips & News http://www.ubuntugeek.com/install-gui-in-ubuntu-server.html
