My XP computer becomes unresponsive



Lately, I have sometimes left my computer running (e.g. it was downloading some large file from the internet, with the browser and file manager running), and returned hours later to find that moving the mouse would not get any response. The wallpaper picture was displayed on the screen, and nothing would happen. The only way I was able to get any kind of response was to reset and reboot XP.

What must I do to prevent this? It has been happening for perhaps a week.

Try the usual stuff. Download Ccleaner from the internet and check your registry then do a virus and spybot check and a defrag and all that stuff.

Someone did suggest it could be a power supply thing too.
