Runs fine then freezes


Recommended Posts

A desktop PC from 2009 may have a heavy accumulation of dust.  This dust layer can inhibit cooling.  The PC runs until the temperature is too high and then the system may lock-up.


The suggestion is to open the chassis and examine the interior.  If there are "dust blankets" around the CPU cooling fins and power supply then the first thing to do is clean the interior of all "dust blankets".


There are other causes where a system may lock-up which can include the RAM, power supply and chips on the motherboard.  However mitigating "dust blankets" is the first thing to do.

They will augment the information @David H. Lipman and the other helpers are collecting...
