Default Completely Freezing at Random

thx in advance. My problem is that my computer keeps freezing at random. No matter what i am doing the computer will freeze completely. It could be from gaming to browsing websites like this. what is the source of this issue.

*Side question = I have a gig of 170 mhz ram. i already kno that the motherboard has a 400 mhz bus and was wondering how big the diff would be if i switched in 400 mhz ram instead.*

Probably tried it already, but Control, Alt, Delete?

Sooo many things.

Check your processes in Ctrl + Alt + Del and see if one is speaking and using alot of cpu.

If not, it could be a failing hard drive.
