That old makes dust build-up highly suspicious
No air flow, no heat removal, hot CPU=dead CPU.

Check the event viewer to see if it's logging errors.
start-->run-->eventvwr.msc-->check the system and application logs for red X's

Double click on them. It'll bring up some information about them. The errors will have a time/date noted on them. Match the errors up with a time you know it froze on you. Look at the Event ID and source for the errors.
