Hi
Over the last few weeks, my computer has started to randomly lock up at different times. I can be doing anything; from playing games to browsing the internet and it might still do it. It seems to often happen, not always though, when I begin to watch a video. Sometimes the computer locks up even when I wake it from hibernation mode. I don't know what it could be? Graphics Card?
I've already tried formatting and reinstalling, makes no difference!

Thanks

run hd tune check the smart warning on your hard drive. run memtest86 from a boot disk to see if it a bad stick of ram. run open hardware monitor check your temps and voltages.
