Unhappy Processor overheating?

Hello

I have recently bought a new computer running on an MSI motherboard and an AMD Athalon XP 3000+ processor... it has started to freeze, not regularly, but normally when I've had it on for a while. After freezing, I reboot, and it wont go past the black info page I normally have to wait about an hour before it decides to actually start up properly. I was wondering if anyone could possibly help me??? Please ??

Thanx... Pants

Yeah, you should just take it back to the retailer. Its not even worth bothering about so early on.

Thanx Bluto for your kind comment

Lord Kalthorn, hi I was going to take it back, but I didnt want to be any trouble. I have now decided I am taking it back after monitoring the temperature for a couple of days. Thanx for taking the trouble to reply
