Got a new 'puter a while ago which worked fine for a while but started freezing up after a while.. It can load windows and you can start up programs if you're fast but it freezes pretty soon after welcome screen. Software problems? Malware? So did I think too at first. But the weird thing is that it freezes even if you go to bios menu. I haven't clocked it but it seems that whatever you do with it, it freezes a set time after powering up. It boots up again if you disconnect it from the power strip for a while. And freezes promptly again.
So, would anyone have any ideas what's the (most likely) culprit? Motherboard? Processor? Faulty memory?
Can't send the whole thing back since I built it myself and the store will receive only separate parts. Or should I just pester them to take the mboard/memory/processor back(they at least have spare parts for finding out what is faulty..)

I already tested another PSU, no effect at all(only spare part I could get my hands on, and could have been remotely plausible I think.)
