What are you doing with it at the time, eg playing games. What is the spec and OS of your machine?

It could be that it is cold, joking there...

If it freezes again press Ctrl Alt Delete together and see what processes are running. List them with the next post...

Hi, lots of reasons why a pc freezes - looking for the simplest first - do you use a battery powered mouse, if so, it could simply be the mouse that is freezing due to dud battery?
But as anskyber says, more info needed!

Cheers

Maybe fan broken and causing over heating ?

FReeezing PC

1. Overheat due to faulty / blocked fans

2. PSU voltages

3. Household power surges fridge etc switching on/off

4. faulty memory stick try memtest click here

5. virus or spyware scan for both especially if shutting down with in a few minutes of switch on or internet use

6. driver conflicts especially grahics cards get the latest drivers for your equipment

Make a mental note of what you are doing when it does it. Then post hear

STREETWORK - If a computer freezes you won't be able to do anything with it, let alone open task manager.

Assumign we are talking about a lock up here, not the mouse running out of batteries..

brunettebabe - If you want to resolve this problem you need to give a vague idea of what is happening. Saying your 'computer freezes, why'? Is like walking into a supermarket and saying I am buying some food, what do I want?
