Default computer freezing frequently

I am trying to trouble shoot, my mother's computer with her. She is desrcibing problem and Frequent freezes, with no way out. She tells me she has to shut power off with switch on back of computer.

I am thinking CPU, Motherboard or Memory issue.

Anyone have any other ideas before I start replacing things to see?

Check the event logs and see what errors are coming up before it freezes. It could be a ACPI function in th bios

the error needs to be more specific there could be many reasons it freezes, open up the pc and check all the fans are working correctly otherwise it will overheat and freeze. If they seem ok go into the bios and check the cpu temp and fan speed.

If that seems good then it could be a virus or trojan could always format the hard drive and start clean if you no what your doing.
