Default Computer Freeze

Alright, I have a desktop that i put together myself (About 6 years ago now) When I try to run it standing up, it will go for maybe 45 minutes, but when i try to do anything (like yesterday when i tried to run the net browser) it freezes. So if I lay it down on its side, it runs just fine with no problems. Any ideas as to what could be causing this?

What are the specs of the machine?

HINT: Press the Windows Key and Pause on the keyboard at the same time
