A computer user complains of a computer that freezes up after about five minutes of use. The technician checks the computer BIOS to see if there might be a configuration problem that is causing the computer to behave consistently in this manner. While the technician is reviewing the information, the computer once again freezes. What is the probable cause of the computer problem?
- The BIOS is corrupt.
- The hard drive is failing.
- The CPU fan is not functioning.
- The CMOS battery has failed.
