Windows 7: Random Freezes

Random Freezes

I do not/ I dont see any BSOD's

Hi,

I have been experiencing problems with my computer recently.

It randomly freezes. When it freezes, I have to press power button for 5-6 sec to shut it down, turn the power supply off, and wait for 5-20 mins before turning it back on again.

If I dont wait for that amount of time, when I switch on the PC, all the fans and some lights come on, but nothing happens, just the fans keeps spinning.

No Blue screens, No error messages, just the frozen picture on the display. Nothing responds, not even caps lock or num lock..

Any ideas?

- I just got GFX card replaced with new one, because it was thought to be creating the problems, but now with new graphics card, its not I guess.

Thanks for your time.
