Default Freezing

The comp in my sig freezes every once in a while, its happened during games, and not during games. Im pretty sure most of the time its when i have iTunes open, and when it happens it makes an everlasting and very annoying beep until i press the restart button on my case. It just happened about ten minutes ago while i was playing Warcraft 3 and listening to iTunes, when i rebooted the cpu temp was at 55. Right now im running the game and the temps arent getting to 60. pentium ds run hot and i know thats not too high for them. So i really dont know the problem. I look in event viewer and it says "The Previous System Shutdown at (time) on (date) was unexpected" I click on online help and it has nothing for me. any idears?

ive done the memtest and my video card is still quite new, i dont think something is wrong with it. everytime it happens theres a long beep that never ends until i push the restart button. It comes from my logitech speakers.

Yeah I am thinking the problem might also be with your mobo or CPU.

As for mobo, I recommend this one:
