    On xp it alsow happend but less often,
    on vista sp1 it happens to me for about 2 times a day.
    I do normal actions on my windows like runing msn, ie and stuff and it just
    happens..
    nothing responds, not the keyboard,mouse,even the modem "PC" light is off
    when it happens.
    I don't know if its a problem in my PC or not couse it's kinda new,
    so is there a way to check whats the problem and how can i solve it?
    all my drivers are up to date and i belive i don't have any viruses becouse
    i just installed Windows Vista yasterday..
    Thanks.

  2. Rightclick the Command Prompt Icon on start, and click "run as
    administrator."
    Type:
    perfmon /rel

    Hopefully the errors will show up with some info on what is causing the
    freezes. Most often, it is a video card driver problem, and your system
    seller may have a web site with a better one.
