mac 10.5.8 constantly freezing--i bought this open box from best buy

Please futher explain so that I will have a clearer idea of what is the issue. What open box did you buy?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
open box just means that someone bought it before and then returned it within 2 weeks. best buy apparently "inspects" the computer and then certifies it for resale at a lower price.

when i first bought it, i had a problem sometimes with turning on the computer and/or waking it up from sleep. the computer would stay off. now when i'm using word or the internet, it freezes up randomly, sometimes with or without a spinning beach ball. this has been happening with increased freqency over the last couple of weeks.

Sir or Ma'am, please return it. It will cost you more with support from us here and out of pocket to try to clean up the mess that the system is. It is under Warranty, so please return it.
