Computer randomly freezes up every 5 seconds

Specs: Windows XP, Intel pentium D 3.00

I have a Intel Core duo 3.00Ghz with 6GB of ram. Recently I been experiencing a spontaneous freeze ups on my computer. Spontaneous as in: When I boot up and use it its fine, then all the sudden it decides it wants to freeze, like I have kicked the computer or pulled out a piece of hardware. I found a way to by pass this, how I figured it out was beyond me, but when this happens I simply right click on my wireless network Icon in the toolbar and click 'Repair'. This seems to fix it.So now I got the Idea, it may be the Wireless network card. I did all the latest driver updates. and Still freezes. Then I go to my device manenger to see if there is any problem there. My Wireless card looks fine but there is a uknown video driver that has a problem, Windows says. I tried to get a driver update for this but nothing was updating, I also was thinking really hard about disabling the device but I was in fear that once I disabled it, I would loose my Video feed and not be able to re-enable it, thus leaving me with a huge problem. I am in constant fear to roll back any drivers cause my computers have a knack of all the sudden not working at all anymore. If anyone has an idea, Please HELP!
