I have recurrent freezes on my PC. It doesn't happen every time I open it and it doesn't happen while booting up. If it does, it usually happens during the first 5 mins I have it on. No BSODs. No automatic reboots. PC just becomes unresponsive all of a sudden. The first time it happened, there was an error in event viewer saying the driver nv4_disp got stuck in an infinite loop. I downloaded and installed the latest driver from NVIDIA but the freezes persist. What's wrong with it?

I had a faulty video card once that caused BSODs and driver crashes at random times. If you have a spare video card, replace your current one and check your computer again. It is possible that there is a hardware fault with your video card.
