Hello, well I've just recently started to get this problem where my computer would just freeze. Nothing would work, not crl-alt delete, nothing. I have to reboot the computer the hard way(pressing the button on the case). Anyway, this went on for a couple of days, now my computer freezes and turns into a solid color. Then, like before, I have to restart the computer by pressing and holding the start button on the case. This has been going for maybe like 2 weeks now, I did some research on it, however I couldn't find anything really. The only thing I thought may be the problem after doing the research is that the power supply may be dying, as a result it stops the power going into the other parts of the computer, making it freeze on one image.

I've had this computer for 3 to 4 years.

Asus P6T motherboard, CPU intel i7, Geforce GTX 260, 6GB of ram, and Windows 7 64bit.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Based on what you have said you could have two things wrong, Hard drive could be dying, or two the video card (because that would explain to an extent why the computer freezes on one solid color). Now I would first test your hard drive with a diagnostic test for your specific hard drive which could be found on the drives manufactures website. If you need help finding this site please post your drives maker and we can help you find it. :)
