xp up todate, 1gb mem,athlon 2600, Albatron KX600MB

Comp is freezing and random, sometimes halfway thru start up, other times after it has been running for a while.

Any ideas, could it be MB or HD it has 2 hard disks. Cleaned out internals of dust etc no different.:mad:

Mmm. Check if the motherboard or video card have any large capacitors that are bulging at the top (or in your PSU perhaps?)

If it's the problem, then see http://www.badcaps.net/

But it could be something else of course.
