    This is what I've done:
    1) reformatted hard disk and reinstalled OS
    2) Scanned for virus
    3) Cleaned the processor heat sink/fan. Reapplied new heat dissipation paste under the heat sink.

    BTW, its a P4 processor, running on XP. Hope to get more leads as I'm running out of ideas. Cheers. Thx.
