Default Freezing Issues

Hi! I have come to these forums to seek help for my problem.
My computer keeps freezing. Not just freezing, and then coming back after a while, but
complete screw-up of the system. These light yellowish hues appear in different places
on the screen, and I have to force shut-down by holding the power button. It is a huge, problem, and it has recently become a lot worse. I am not writing this thread on it, but using another laptop, because my computer has become almost unusable. The other day when I tried to copy a document from it onto a memory drive, I had to restart it FIFTEEN TIMES. Another problem is that I am a hardcore Minecraft player, and everytime it freezes, my world file is deleted. Please help me! My computer is a Compaq Presario B1800, running Windows XP. I have recentely had another GB of RAM put in.
Thanks, randomhash.

EDIT: It is now in a completely frozen state. It won't turn off and will not do anything. It is like it is just a picture in a frame.

It sounds like either the RAM is not compatible or something is overheating. 2 things to try.

1. download and install speed fan. this will give you the temperatures of your GPU, CPU and other devices in your system. http://www.almico.com/speedfan445.exe

2. Try removing that recent stick of RAM and see how it goes. (Was it freezing before this upgrade ?)

It could also be that the registry needs to be cleaned out. you could try downloading ccleaner and running the registry scanner and fixing what it brings up. http://www.filehippo.com/download_cc...0aa108b3f6f72/
