I recently put together a new computer and for the first few months it was perfect until recently.
It has started freezing up randomly first for brief periods of time making doing anything nearly impossible now.
I've installed Windows 7, Ubuntu 10.04 and ArchLinux all of which my system freezes on which means it must be hardware related.
I ran memtest+, no errors so it's not my memory but that's as far as my knowledge goes for testing where the problem lies.
Please help :thumbsup:

I would have started with a test of the hard drive and a check for system overheating/cleanliness.
