Thanks to anyone who reads this and more thanks if you can help. My problem is common but is really bothering me. My computer locks up out of nowhere, and the mouse continue's to move but ctrl+alt+delete brings up no task manager and causes the windows to disappear.
I've run Eset nod 32, rougefix, lspfix, avg antivirus (before ESET) and Malwarebytes AntiMalware. what confuses me is it does it most often when i listen to music, am on myspace, and watch videos on youtube. So i installed new audio drivers, new processing drivers and went as far to defrag and install a new video driver even though i didn't think the last two were the problem.
mobo = MSI 7185
ram = 2gb ddr400
video = EVGA superclocked 880gt 512mb
cpu = AMD X2 3800
OS = Windows XP 32bit w/ Service Pack 3
any help or solutions?
