Specs & software?

Could be a bad Windows installation. Might want to check for Trojans, viruses and maybe do a Windows repair.

Run memtest86+ and check for errors.

Could be a faulty power supply as well.

Waiting for your specs too.

Sounds like CPU lock due to overheating; System Specs?

If you see a furry tail sticking out of a fan slot, you'll know a rabbit crawled in there and stuffed things up.

Strange... I had the same problem about a week ago. come to find out that it was my wireless network card causing the problem for some reason. As soon as I removed it no more lock up.

I had some random freezing issues with XP 64 myself, it isn't very stable on very many setups. Vista x64 on the same install was rock solid. Hence why it was never very mainstream. The best platform I have run it on is VM's. :)
