    I have a windows 2000 pc with a AMD processor and 512 megs of ram... the computer was running fine up until about a month ago. However, when I use it for more than 20 minutes at a time it spontaneously freezes. There is no warning or event id's.. it just completley freezes.

    I replaced the network card and the ram - formatted and reinstalled the operating system and it still does the same thing? what else could it be?

    No shorts or anything? Check all the power connections. If you have another power supply that you can swap in give that a try. If that fails I would start to look at the motherboard.

    Not sure how I would check for shorts... I notice when the freeze occurs the fans still run and everything seems normal, except well the mouse, keyboard, screen is frozen.

    I also notice the issue comes up more when I browse the local network and transfer files... Also high bandwidth websites. All my other nodes (70+) are fine when doing the same thing.
