Hi, guys thanks for the help.

My problem is that my PC is freezing every so often and so it becomes inoperable, it usually takes from 1/2 an hour to 2 hours and it's frozen so then I must manually hold the power button to turn it off.
How do you think I could remedy the problem?

SPECS:
Operating System
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit SP2
CPU
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 2.83GHz
RAM
4.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 1271MHz (6-8-8-31)
Motherboard
ASUSTeK Computer INC. P5N-D (Socket 775)
Graphics
BenQ G950A (1366x768@60Hz)
NVIDIA GeForce GT 630
Hard Drives
466GB SAMSUNG HD502HJ SCSI Disk Device (ATA)
Optical Drives
TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S223F SCSI CdRom Device

-EDIT- Just had a BSOD I think it said wdf01000.sys
And I also think it said NON_PAGED_ERROR or something

-EDIT- Fixed the BSOD by updating my drivers, I'll just wait to see if my freezing has been fixed

What are you doing at the times that it freezes?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

It can be anything, from Idle to playing games to surfing the net. And btw I am still experiencing the freezes and not the BSOD's

Ok, my PC hasn't frozen at all over the past few days whilst playing games, but today, when I left it idle in firefox, it froze. Could it have something to do with firefox?
