  • Although this is off-topic, a word of the wise: Scan for viruses, see if Control-Alt-Delete works when it is hung. If there is no fatal error (Blue Screen) and if your mouse doesn't move and the power button does nothing, the keyboard does nothing: chances are, your Power Supply Unit (PSU) has failed. This happened to me around a month ago and I didn't realize this until too late and the thing was smoking and I lost hundreds of dollars of components. Just be careful and approach with caution... I don't want you to have the same experiences I did =)

    It could also be the processor or RAM. Try running Prime95 and Memtest86+ to test your processor (CPU) and memory (RAM) if you think the PSU is okay.
