System freezes and reboots improperly

I am running an asus mb, solid state hdd (60 GB) with a 650w power supply with windows 7 (home premium). the system "freezes" after about 5-7 minutes every time (although the cursor/mouse can still be moved, but it won't do anything). if i leave it alone, it will eventually have the screen go black (except the cursor, which can still be seen and moved) and then eventually restarts - although it often cannot boot without my interfering and pointing it to the HDD drive to boot. Any ideas? I have checked CPU temp (40-46 C) and run chkdsk. cant run full virus scan because system freezes before it's done. i have Express Gate and have tried to work with that instead of windows, but it also freezes...HELP!!!

Reset the bios settings and after that in the bios set your boot drive at 1st in the drive order/boot priority order)
