Why does my computer lock up?

Specs: Windows XP
Almost every day, it seems like my computer locks up. The monitor is black, the CD-ROM drive light and the hardrive light are lit. The only way to get it responsive again is to restart it.

We've run virus scans; no viruses or malware, etc., we've used CCleaner to try and clean the registry, but nothing has been working. It's been doing this for a few weeks now.

Does anyone know what might be the problem?

Have you installed anything new in the two week period? If so try uninstalling it with RevoUninstaller at this link.

Also how much RAM do you have?
Lastly check you CPU temperature to see if your pc is over heating? Usually because it full of dust.
