What is system lock up?

Question

I had my computer on yesterday since morning. In the afternoon, I went to work on it and it was locked up. I had to turn the computer off and restart it. When I restarted it, the fans started, the lights came on, but nothing happened. I tried a different battery, checked to make sure all the cards were in properly, checked my monitor, etc...and nothing happens. Any idea what this could be? Please HELP!

It coulc be system lock up. Sometimes the system will lock up because of the computer being on and programs running or software being downloaded.
