Try doing a System Restore to a date before you had the problem.

My system a few years back had random freezes. I eventually found it was the video card. Some of the capacitors had rounded tops when they should have had flat tops. Some of the stuff inside had popped out. That meant the capacitors were faulty. It worked again after replacing that. Check your capacitors, if you can, for rounded tops. Can be hard to see, though. Use a good flashlight. It could be general hardware failure. Power supply could be having trouble putting out stable voltage, some random wire could be loose hard drive motor could be having trouble.

yea allready done that :/ not much use of it now, but back on problem, i disconnected 1HDD and for the moment its stable, no random freezing for over a houre while i was playing, watching stuff, surfing alt-tabbing etc, could it be that a faulty HDD cause my system instability? and how can i measure/prove it that it indeed is this HDD causing the problems?

I would give it a couple of days. If things are still good after that time, it would seem the HDD is the problem.

Does event viewer under system show any disk related events?

Have you tried replacing the sata cables in your system?
