There are many reasons why the screen freezes. It can be a software or a hardware problem. One source of problem why screen freezes is the lack of available memory (both virtual and physical memory)while your CPU operates. You can check you System's RAM and available disk space.
Norton anti-freeze may help you with your problem.

One reason the screen may freeze is the video adapter driver needs to be up dated or you have the refresh rate set to high,check the video carh to see if it is seated correctly or trouble shoot using device manager.

I need more details. PC freeze causes range from Pakistani Bush Rabbit sneezes to Cosmic Ray Distortions to bad RAM. Knowing the platform, OS, maybe a driver and device history , and the typical activity the machine is engaged in when this occurs will help me (like my fellow technicians) make a more accurate diagnosis.

Typical causes include: Drivers need updating, a device is bad, your RAM is bad, your processor is bad, your MB is bad, your HDD is bad, your App is bad, or your OS is bad.

Is it too cold? Things usually freeze when it is.

Like the other answere, there may be lots of
reasons for this. I had the same problem on
two computers that are networked. It may
have been virus related that corrupted some
files. The application that seemed to
trigger it was Norton Systemworks 2000 and
also scandisk, it would just freeze
everytime. I and an IT from NMSU tried
everything we knew and finally solved the
problem by removing Norton, reloading windows
and finally reloading Norton. Worked for me!
