Default New computer keeps freezing.

I helped my friend but a computer a week or two ago and It keeps freezing all the time no matter what he is doing. It happens during games music or nothing at all. All drivers and software has been installed and updated. Anybody have any ideas on what it could be?

After looking at that pic of Ms. Alba, the blood is rapidly heading away from my brain!! Disconnect everything from that new build except the video card, HD, mouse and keyboard. Boot into windows and see if the system continues to hang. If not then start adding periperals, DVD, PCi cards ect., one at a time till it hangs up. Then you need to evaluate that specific piece of hardware or it's drivers. Without knowing the specs of that system, we may not get very far!!
