WindowsXP Professional Locks up

By Sudney ·
My 1.4GB Computer System stays running most of the time. But When I do shut it down completely (Usually about 12 hours) and turn it back on, it boot up to WindowsXP Professional just fine. Until about 15 to 20 Minutes after It has been booted up completely. Then it Locks Up solid. I can't even move the mouse. And I get a high pitched continuous noise out of the speakers. So I press the reset button and never have the problem again until I Shut down the computer completely and start it back up for the first time after shut down. Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone have any suggestions or a fix for this problem? Or does anyone knows what is causing it?

Open the case and try finding the source of the high pitched sound,this may be coming from the power supply or CPU,check the fans to make sure they are operating properly,the system may be over heating

Hi,

Do you have any software in your station that monitors the heating threshold? If so, you may want to increase it. High pitched beeps usually mean your station is not properly cooled or some device is not properly inserted.
