Windows 7: 7 Pro freezes/hangs up randomly - no BSOD no error code

7 Pro freezes/hangs up randomly - no BSOD no error code

I apologize in advance if this is in the wrong section, but it seemed the closest fit.

At various, seemingly random points throughout using the computer, Windows 7 simply freezes or locks up. No BSOD or error code is given, it simply becomes completely unresponsive. The only means I have of shutting down/restarting is to hold the power button and force it to turn off.

  • Using 32 bit Windows 7 Professional
  • Downloaded and clean installed over XP Home a couple weeks ago
  • Computer is an eMachines T3104 with a AMD Sempron 3100+ processor - circa 2005
  • In an effort to combat old hardware with the new Windows 7 and freezing, I upgraded to 2GB RAM, 430 watt PSU and an AGP 8x video card (Jaton 3DFORCE FX 5200TV)
  • I tried to update the BIOS (currently Phoenix-Award 6.00PG) today. That program hangs up while Windows 7 continued to work.
I'd love for it to be fully operational. It is not used for any gaming - online or otherwise. I use it for internet and school work (Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat, etc)

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

My computer will not support Windows 7, regardless of what the Upgrade Advisor said. Going to uninstall and go back to XP.
