Random Computer Crashes – What Should I Do?

In this article we are going to talk about random computer crashes. In today’s tough economy, many of us are keeping things like cars and computers a lot longer then we did in years past. Not only that, many of us are trying to hold onto the old reliable Windows XP operating system. For the latter, I cannot blame you one bit. It was and still is the very best of all the operating systems that Microsoft ever produced. So, if you have an older machine and the system randomly slows down or crashes, the first thing I would consider is heat. As a system ages, the fans begin the wear out and this in turn allows your computer to run hotter then it did when it was young. This is especially true if you are working with graphics, playing a game or running an intense program. The extra processing power will cause your processor to create more heat and this in turn will slow down your computer if the fan is not doing it’s job as intended. The extra heat can even cause a blue screen which will shutdown or reboot your computer. This is actually a protective mechanism that is designed to keep your hardware from heat damage.
