Exclamation Complete Freeze

Hi all,

I am having a problem with my computer completely freezing within 10 secs and 5mins (randomly) of me turning it on.

I took it to my local computer shop and was told that the power supply needed to be changed, it then worked for about 3-4 days then went back to normal.

I am now on my 3rd power pack and the problem is still occuring?

Has anyone any ideas what it maybe that is freezing the system?
