    Check for overheating.

    Also check that your psu is putting out enough power for your system.

    If it`s a cheap generic psu. It won`t be capable of putting out anywhere near it`s rated output. Even a good quality psu will only achieve around 70% efficiency.

    Look at this psu wattage calculator HERE

    It ain't overheating, and power supplies correct,I got the right driver installed,when it freezes it makes a weird buzzing sound.It irritates me very much.The calculator doesn't have most of my computer specs.I don't think its my psu, cuz I had this pc 4 a year now, and it did the freezing crap when i had the stock graphics card which is a Nvidia GeForce FX5200xt.

    What psu do you have?

    Make, model, and wattage please.

    Also, make sure you have the latest drivers installed, including your chipset drivers.
