    computer beeps then freezes

    Hi my friends computer is acting weird.
    He says this happens on the net more than anything.
    He'll be surfing and then the computer gives out a single beep and then freezes. He has to shut it down and reboot and then its fine for awhile. But usually happens again in a hour or so.
    He's on dial-up if that makes a difference.
    Could it be overheating?
    Some feedback would be appreciated.
    Thanks Dave.
    He says it happens mostly on the net but has happened during normal use.

    Check the Event Viewer (inside Control Panel's Administrative Tools) see if you can find the associated error and post back.

    Here's what he sent me if this helps or not.

    8/8/04 8:12 am- 8:13 am

    i had a total of 16 errors(that just blows me away) within the time frame above. They were in sets of 2 as in:
    2- service control manager
    2- DCOM
    then one more at 2:14 pm this afternoon, it was- service control manager.

    This is what it said for the srevice control manager errors:

    the IPSEC Services service terminated the following error:
    The authentication service is unknown.

    Then the DCOM errors:

    DCOM got error "the dependancy service does not exsist or has been marked for deletion. " attempting to start the service BITS with arguements'' "in order to run the server:
    { 4991D34B-80A1-4291-83B6-3328366B9097

    Let me know if this is what you wanted.
    Dave.
