Question Unidentified Problem

For the last few months, I've been having a problem with my comp. When I'm playing games, the computer will randomly freeze itself. The sound will blink out and the image on the monitor will freeze first. Then, the sound will kick back in a few seconds later, but the video never comes back. I'm forced to restart my computer every time. I have no real idea what could be causing this. I can leave it on for days with no problem, then try to play a game and have it blink out on me in the first five minutes. Hell, there've been times I've never even made it to the game's menu. Anyways, I know that's not a lot to go on, but any help or ideas would be appreciated.

you havent made any alterations to the hardware in the computer during that time period i.e. added things, overclocked, changed slots
