Dell Optiplex GX270 - Freezes up!

I have a Dell Optiplex GX270. It keeps freezing on me within 5 minutes of logging on. I've tried: System Restore, Disk Clean Up, Defragging, Webroot Antivirus, a new surge protector, I also installed a new power supply. I tried to do the PC Restore that Dell's website says should work but no matter how many times I restart the computer and press ctrl+F11 I get nothing. Any suggestions?

You may have either a memory chip gone bad or the CPU overheating. Withot seeing it and testing it's hard to tell you which. But one thing you can try is if you have 2 RAM installed, try to remove 1 and see if the problem continues. If so, change them and put the one you removed back and remove the other. if it continues then you may have an overheating problem.

Otherwise, you can try a SCANDISK and DEFRAG to clean up the hard drive and data.

Hello,
First off, try going to BIOS. Usually you have to tap either F2 or Delete on dell computers while booting up to enter BIOS. If you're successful, and you're in BIOS, observe for a few minutes if it will freeze while in BIOS. If it doesn't then you might need to reinstall windows. If it freezes in BIOS as well, then there's a hardware malfunction/problem. That will be the time to have a technician check the hardware on your desktop.
Regards..
