The problem is after 10-60 minutes of gaming or a long time idling, my computer freezes. The monitor goes in to power save mode and won't wake up, so the only way to stop it is to forcibly shut it down. Whatever sound was playing skips, like if someone said "ahhhhh", it would loop "a-a-a-a-a-a" until i shut it off. The only things I have done was to check temperatures with speedfan, and clean out all the dust in my computer. The temperatures seem fine, and cleaning the dust out changed nothing. If anyone wants more info, I will post it. My computer is a little more than two years old. Heres some more basic info:

Could be hardware, software, or drivers.

Check Windows Event Viewer and see if Windows is logging any errors.

What graphics card are you using?
Is the system still in its fully default configuration, i.e. all hardware exactly as it came out the factory or have you changed / upgraded anything?
