Have you tried to snap it out of the frozen state by accessing the Task Manager?

Ctrl + Alt + Delete >> Task Manager

I would try that first. If the machine does not respond once it enters the frozen state, restart your machine and access the Task Manager once the desktop environment loads. Particularly i'd look into the Performance tab to look into your CPU and PF usage statistics. Let the machine just sit idle with the Task Manager opened to the Performance tab and watch the statistics for a bit see if there are any spikes in CPU or PF usage.

If your machine locks up again, reboot and look into the Event Viewer for any Error or Warning codes / messages that may have occurred within the same time frame that your machine entered the frozen state.

Start >> Control Panel >> Administrative Tools >> Event Viewer

You'll want to look for clues in the System and Application nodes of the Event Viewer.

There's bound to be clues there.

Also, if you have recently installed any NEW hardware devices (RAM, HD, power supply, etc.) you might have a problem with the NEW hardware. Event Viewer should show you if there are any critical errors with your system.
Bill Gates recognizes the skills... so i suggest you start there and recognize them too...
