Re: my pc always hung

If you can borrow the two following items from a friend it can help you find which component is causing the problem, as I have also seen this problem several times in many machines.

1. Replace the graphic card, as their might be a faulty memory chip in your VGA card which is causing this problem. Which is the reason why it sometimes crashes while working.
2. One of your RAM (memory) is failing, again you can run some tools to check, but the best option is to find another similar module and replace it and check it.

you could only upgrade the processor and RAM in this condition i.e.

you can only change your an upgraded p-III processor like 1.0 GHz, 1.1 GHz or 1.3GHz and
upgrade the RAM by changing to 256 in each slot.

that is all what u can do with ur pc

Overlocked my Intel Pentium 4 3.00 Ghz

You have to go into your bios and see what your front side bus and memmory speeds are. If you overclock you cpu, sometimes you need to underclock your memmory. Say step your memmory down to 333mhz and overclock your front side bus(fsb).
Normally your fsb is 200 and only increase it by mhz. Restart, go into windows. and see if it is stable.

I always use cpu-z and gpu-z to check all of my hardware settings. I use ati tool to overclock my x1950 and it is great. There really isnt any good cpu overclocking tools because its better to do it in the bios.

Do a specific search in google for your processor and overclocking.
