Why is my computer freezing up?

Question

My computer keeps freezing. At first i thought it was video card so i replaced that. then i replaced RAM, then a new Hard drive. After i installed windows im still having the same problem. It will just freeze up and i cant even move my mouse. Only solution is to unplug. I notice that it does it alot when im watching videos online or macromedia flash. Any help would be great. Thanks

This sounds like it is an over heating problem, possibly with the motherbaord getting to hot Your best bet is to replace the power supply to something that can handle your components better; maybe a 500 watt or something close to that should be fine I also encourage everyone to have plenty of fans installed in his/her case as this can dramatically assist in keeping your system cool Thanks!!
