Question about Computers & Internet
My computer is freezing running XP Pro on an ASUS P5GD2-X series board 3GB RAM
First, open your Task manager and open the "performance tab". There are a lot of built in programs in XP that can peg the CPU to full and this will slow/crash your computer. If any program is eating 100% of your CPU power for a long time, use Google to see how to fix the problem.
Test your RAM: Open the Start Menu and type in mdsched.exe, then press enter. - Then follow the procedure you think is best for your machine.
If your machine is capable via the BIOS, check to see at what temperature the CPU is running. Some processors run hot all the time, but some processors can't take the heat and will crash.
Also, if your computer is not under warranty physically check to see that the CPU fan is moving freely... and the GPU fan as well if your computer has one. Clean any dust and what not off of the blades if it is dirty, or replace if necessary.
If none of that seems to be the issue, remember that XP is considered "End of Life" and a lot of programs will not run on XP any more. Also remember that while some programs might still work, they may still be buggy on XP.

i had the same problem (other video card ) and it was fixed by using other drivers ! Try a driver update. Also if u can check the temperature of the card, it may get to hot, but usualy when this happens the computer freezes completely or reboots ...If so clean it;s cooler or help it with another one (if possible ) ...

This motherboard only support DDR type of RAM up to 4GIG , 400 MHz • 333 MHz this are the support speed of DDR RAM, so you can go ahead upgrade up to 4 GIG of RAM and that will make your computer very fast...
