What do you mean? It freezes, then works, then freezes, then works?


I'm leaning towards the video card as a first bet. Did you update drivers recently? You could try that. Do you have another video card or on-board graphics you could try to see if it still happens?

Can you roll back the drivers to an older version? Did it just recently start?

Could try a system restore? I'm not much of a hardware guy, I just suspected it was the video card. Have you tried to "reseat" it (take it out and the put it back in) to make sure it's in all the way.

You won't lose your games, it restores to the last time you Updated your OS, or when you set a restore point yourself. You could only use your games if you installed it after you updated your OS
