    Power supply?
    Hard drive?
    Do they hang and remain hung? Or do they pause and go, pause and go.

    PC hangs this way...

    -- if i press ctrl+alt+del as soon as the game hangs then i'm able to end process it, but then also i have to restart my computer because the graphics won't show the clear picture of the videos with some icons color changed into red cross lines.....

    -- but if i'm a bit late to pres ctrl+alt+del then i have to press the restart button.... so i think the hdd hangs...

    (THX for your reply)

    Likely your video graphics card is the cause of all the problems, and must be replaced, though it might merely be a driver that has become corrupted.
