Unsure if its a Software or a hardware problem

Bought a Dell L521X more than a month ago and I am having problems. I am running Windows 7 Professional. This has happened to me once already. And it just happened recently. When I am browsing the Internet or doing anything, the computer gets stuck. I cannot do anything. Mouse doesnt work. CTRL+ALT+DEL doesnt work. It is just frozen. Only thing I can do is a hard reboot. I don't mind doing that but what If I am doing something important and this happens, I do not want to do a hard reboot at that time. I've had frozen screens before but usually pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and waiting for a minute or two solves problems. But in this computer, it doesnt work when its frozen. I need to know if it has something to do wit software or hardware.

Ehh. I'll see. Right now I dont have the time to go through all that. What I will try is pressing CTRL ALT ESC rather than CTRL ALT DELETE next time and see if task manager shows up if windows is frozen.
