    Ok we need more info.

    What OS (thinking xp)
    Latest drivers?
    How long has the problem been going on?
    Any changes to the hardware recently?
    Any error messages? or logs?

    and lastly, when you say crash does it reboot? or does it just freeze up?

    Yeah, need more info. It could be an underpowered psu, or your comp. might be unstable, is it overclocked?
