1) Questions and Answers : Windows : SETI@home Classic & BOINC Freeze (Message 114871)

Sorry, to be specific neither client has been able to run without freezing since then. The computer in question is actually running under another ID. I have continued upgrading the client though it cannot process any work without freezing.
I just tried the Prime95 stress test which also results in a freeze, so I am led to believe something in the hardware is failing where it hadn't before.

This computer has been able to run the classic and boinc seti clients with no problems, but some time ago BOINC began to crash [after a version 2 to 3 upgrade i think]. Either client will freeze the computer within a few minutes with no errors logged. The motherboard/CPU temperature shows no abnormal increase. The BIOS settings are in order. This freeze only occurs when running a SETI client, otherwise the computer is stable for weeks running many other programs.

It is a MSI 745 Ultra motherboard, AMD Athlon XP 1800MHz, 2 sticks of 512MB DDR 266 RAM, running Windows XP SP1.
