Try the following for a freezing or crashing computer:
1) General maintenance - open the computer case and blow out the dust with a can of compressed air (do not shake can).  Aim air at CPU fan, power supply fan.
2) Turn on computer, does the CPU fan spin?  It should
3) Turn off computer, remove memory modules and reinsert memory modules.  Take care to make sure they are lined up correctly, they can only go in one way.  Use the tabs to remove them.
4) Make a Memtest CD from www.memtest.org.  Follow the instructions there to test the RAM for bad memory chips.
5) Make a knoppix live cd from www.knoppix.org.  Follow the instructions there to boot into knoppix.  Does it crash when running knoppix?  If not it could be Windows that is the culprit.

When i turn on the computer the windows xp load screen comes up as always but this time it keeps freezing so i cant get into my computer


Try to boot in safe mode and check wether its entering in the windows, if its work then choose privious restore point & restore your pc. also remove any unwated software, keep the HDD free from excessive fragmentation, as this may help prevent startup problems, freezeups, crashes etc.

Freezes and crashes are generally caused by some sort of instability in the computer system.

The following is a list of specific problems that can cause instability along with what to check when troubleshooting each.
Viruses can cause instability.
Run a virus check on the computer to look for a possible virus.

Conflicts can cause instability.
Check the Windows Device Manager to see if there are any yellow exclamation marks or red Xs beside the listings for device classifications. If there are, contact Tech Support.

Buggy or damaged software applications can cause instability.
If the system is less stable when certain software programs are running, shut down those programs and see if the problem continues to occur. If the problems stop, chances are that those software programs are causing the problems.

Buggy, outdated, or conflicting drivers can cause instability.
Check manufacturer web sites for updated device drivers for the various devices installed on the computer system, such as: printer drivers, modem drivers, video drivers, sound drivers, USB device drivers, etc.
Update one driver at a time and see if the system stabilizes. If this doesn't work, it may be a hardware problem, so contact Tech Support.

AC problems can cause instability.
Check to see if the computer system is plugged into an overloaded outlet.
Make sure the computer system is plugged into a surge suppressor.

The installation of new devices can cause instability.
There are three typical symptoms that point to this problem:
The computer system fails to boot, freezes during a boot, or freezes during an operation for no apparent reason.
The system fails to recognize the newly installed device.
One or more software applications fail to function as expected after an upgrade.

Some Tips for Dealing with Freezes and Crashes
Keep track of the hardware and software that is added to a computer.
The addition of new hardware and software can often cause problems to occur.

Research the compatibility of new hardware and software with the existing computer system before purchase and installation.

The older a PC, the more likely it is to crash.

When a computer freezes or crashes, chances are that changes made after the last save and when the freeze or crash occurred will be lost.

Sims 2 plus expansion packs keep crashing


Im not positive but it may work. Go to "Start", "Control Panel", "Hardware and Sound", then "Power Options". Once you have found "Power Options" your going to want to set your computer to "High Perfomance" mode. You computer will now run your hardware at level its supposed to be ran at. But, power usage will go up though. So as long as your not leaving your computer on for long extended periods of time, its ok. But if you are, I recommend turning it back to "Balanced" mode. Hope this helps. Get back to me if you need anything else.
