Hello, everyone! My primary computer, loaded with Windows Vista, is suffering a peculiar problem as of yesterday. After an amount of time ranging from a few minutes to a few hours of being on, my computer will just freeze. All lights on the mouse and keyboard turn off, the sound turns off, the picture on the monitor freezes, etc. The only hardware change I've made recently is a PSU replacement about a month ago, but I don't think the issue is hardware related, since I've been in Safe Mode, and I'm dual-booting Linux off a separate HDD, and the problem only persists when regularly using Windows Vista.


The only things I've downloaded lately are various mods from the Fallout: New Vegas Nexus. I've done a full boot-time virus scan with Avast, I've scanned for spyware with SUPERAntispyware, I've scanned for registry issues with CCleaner, I've done plenty of things with Advanced SystemCare 6, I've tried using the OS installation disk to repair the OS. Absolutely nothing I've tried has been able to fix it. Any help will be appreciated.
