    Hey everyone, Im running on a Windows XP Professional with sp2 and my computer has been crashing alot lately. I am able to stay on the computer for quite awhile if I just leave it still, but if im on internet explorer,playing games or running any other programs my computer locks up and I have to restart it.(Normally it would automatically restart but I disabled it) People were telling me that it was a problem with the IDE Cable connecting my drive to my motherboard and they it may need to be replaced..or that it could just be loose. I have opened my computer case from both sides but i cannot identify what the IDE Cable is. Someone please help me.

    Thanks In Advance.
