System:
4 Year Old Desktop
HP Pavillion
WinXP SP3 32bit
AMD X4200
2 GB of DDR2 RAM

What happens:
Computer screen freezes, audio stutter-repeats, keyboard unresponsive (cannot Ctrl Alt Del or Shift Escape) but mouse works, turn off by holding down power button.

When does it happen:
Whenever I run Team Fortress 2 (had this game for 2.5 years)

When did it start happening:
Today.

Notes: Power supply was replaced a week ago as POST failed. Problem traced to damaged USB port in the back causing shorts. PS/2 ports are fried too.

QUESTION
Is there some 3rd party app that can minimize EVERYTHING if I hit a certain keyboard shortcut or mouse button like Mouse 4 (Back button on browser)

As far as I'm aware, no...... also, reinstall TF2. Back up your save game to a flash drive or something, and reinstall the game. And also, you may want to get one of those free PC checkups at Staples.
