turn computer on all is fine,after about 10 mins beep keyboard and mouse freeze beep! turn computer off ,turn back on.. fine again for x amount of time then gradully starts a random beep again(alarm type of beep) and freezes again!
i have been running lots ov virus scans etc but all coming back clear,i have also hooverd the inside of computer becouse somebody told me it mite just be overheating becouse of dust :/ but still it is beeping and freezing,i have changed the keyboard and mouse but no its still randomly beeping,the computer is 14 months old so out of warrenty :( im in work at the moment using there computer trying to figure this out! any help would be very much appreciated,!!!!i hope this all makes sense :)

Nothing to do with a virus and never use a vacuum on a computer, a nice easy way to possibly kill it.Anyway most likely overheating or faulty hardware.

i was told to hoover the dust because that can kill it!
how do i know if the hardware is the problem without taking it too a repair shop where i can guess they will try to rip me off for being stupid and not having a clue,with my comp being so young i wouldnt ov thought it would be a hardwear fault!:( is there anything i can download to check it?

when u say hoovered the inside did you specifically target the cpu and gpu heatsinks making sure there was good airflow under the fans?
if not perhaps retry using a natural fibre brush to clear the heatsinks keeping the vac well away from the electronic components.
other wise as said probably a hardware failure such as memory or mainboard.
also what makes you assume you will be "ripped" off by a computer technician? bit of paranoia there, consider seeing a professional over that too..

If there is a component fault causing this it will likely happen time and again.
Many people go down the route of replacing component after component and you might strike lucky and manage a fix. Sometimes it can be as simple as a bit of solder on a board that has broken or is shorting in some way.
If it is software or a confilict of some sort then the tools you download may fix it.
In the end you will need to decide if its something you can live with or if it needs to be junked.
Its not necessarily anything to do with being gullible. There are faulty pieces or kit out there.

Try removing the memory and then sticking it back in.
Had a similar problem last year and that seemed to solve it.
