What game are you playing? Is it a game that's installed on your computer or a game through the internet?

Does it always hang on that same game or hangs/not responding to all games?

Check the event viewer. It's likely recording an error.
start-->run-->eventvwr.msc-->look at the application and system logs for errors (red X's)

Does this computer have a single core processor?
You may be running out of processor space, typical cause of hang.

can it be possible due to some antivirus or firewall programs conflicting? and how fast is your Internet?
