Windows 7: Crashes while playing video files

Crashes while playing video files

I've been having trouble playing video files; mainly .avi and .mkv, over several different media players: VLC, BSPlayer and WMP.

They seem to play just fine for 10 minutes or so but afterwards the player crashes and the system freezes almost completely (Task Manager sometimes responds after a while so I can end the processes in question)

Thank you but I seem to have isolated the issue; a case of hardware overheating.

If you think it's because of the dust, there must be a lot of it. It could be bad hardware too though.
