Default Random Freezing

I've had this problem for a while...once in a while, after my comp has been on for a few hours, all of a sudden everything freezes for 1/2 a second, goes again for 2 seconds, then freezes for 1/2 a second repeatedly, mouse, keyboard, winamp, video, games everything...i have no idea what's causing the problem any suggestions?

Look for an IRQ conflict, failing that test your system components out especially the hard drive.

Failing that or any other advice <vbeg>.......

Pull everything out of your system that is not essential:

Then labouriously slot it all back whilst testing in between.
