First things first:
Did you installed any new software?
What kind of video card have you got?
At what moment the computer hangs?
What programs do you have in your Startup Folder?
What display settings have you got at the moment?
I think we need at least these details to give a possible solution.

Some unknowns: Does it freeze when starting? Or does it freeze when starting a program? If so what is the program?
But even so, you may want to try something first: try to boot in safe mood and check all your booting. If it is a program's problem, uninstall it.

Hope it works! Maozy

Just wondering: are you on a LAN and log out and have disk maintenance scheduled while you are logged off? That more than likely will lock up the machine; if you have screensaver active, a "fraction" of the saver image may be frozen onto the screenat lockup...
