Windows 7: Windows 7 Fresh Install Locks Up

Windows 7 Fresh Install Locks Up

OK heres the story, my desktop has been down for a while ... about 6 months. I wiped it clean from issues of locking up. I have done 3 fresh installs of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit retail using all up to date drivers and everything, I have tried with CPU overclocked and normal clock. When I boot up she runs fine and then when I start listening to music off of my backup drive or browse the internet she will lock up at random, and by lock up I mean it is like im looking at a picture of my screen frozen with no responsiveness whatsoever not even the mouse moving no HDD activity ... nothing! So Ive installed the OS 3 TIMES fresh install new partitions format etc. It does it every time after I let windows update do its thing or just listen to music off the backup drive.
Specs are:

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Retail
Biostar A780XA2-03 Socket AM2+ Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800 CPU
4GB Ram - I have swapped sticks that I have had - ( 4 1gb sticks 533mhz)
Nvidia 8300GS on PCI Express x16
