    My laptop started freezing up all the time last week, before it even completely loaded windows and such. I talk to dell and get a new harddrive. Now I install the harddrive fine, but I can't even install Windows XP because it keeps freezing up. WTF. I'll call Dell again I guess, but I get the feeling they don't know what they are doing.

    Download that to floppy/CD and try a memory scan and see what it comes up with

    If you don't find bad memory, you could have an Overheating CPU... Common with newer dells laptops we work on the CPU heatsink/heatpipe doesn't get fastned down well or is plugged up with dirt/animal hair/etc.

    In worst case, its the Mommy :(
