Temporary computer feezes? Answered
We have an old computer that we used forever and it has everything on it. We are now experiancing a serious issue. It has a small Nvidia graphics card, 2 hard drives, one SATA, one that other big cord. I just dusted it and checked for improper cooling, but it is fine. I let it idle for a while and here is what happens. I have Task Manager running with the performance tab up. It freezes for exactly five secconds, and the hard drive stops. Then it runs for exactly five seconds again. Each time it has a CPU spike which every time shows as 84%, no RAM change is seen. Any idea's, we can't get the wifi to work for some reason so I can't get any programs for it I don't think, unless maybe I can flash-drive it. Anyway, it seems very odd that it is exactly 5 second's every time.
One other thing, we had this uniblue registry booster thing come on and it kept asking us to buys stuff, and we never had a problem before that.
