Do you have your Windows disk? If you do, then you could try a repair install.

It's freezing, it may be software related but could also be hardware, can you boot into safe mode? (to eliminate the video card drivers from the equation)

What are your system specs? has this just started? done anything recently that could cause it? new software/hardware? overclocked?

More info please.
