my computer has been freezing intermittently (which is annoying particularly given my propensity to have 20+ windows open at once) and we were at a complete loss as to the cause (thinking it was something softwarey).
however we hit ourselves on the foreheads after the last occasion when we remembered that when we got this ‘puter from Uncle Nelly the CPU fan was really flakey. Fan stops spinning, cpu gets too hot ergo computer freezes. At least it doesn’t melt or catch fire!!
Time to add a CPU fan to that second list over there –> (as a matter of urgency).
