PC locks itself and stops working

Hi - One of my PC's continuously locks itself.Basically, everything from the keyboard to the mouse just stop working.This happens all of the time.Sometimes it comes back on after a re-boot and at other times it won't come on for a few hours. I have cleaned it thinking that the power supply may be dirty etc but this has made no difference. Does anybody have an idea what is causing this?

Thanks

Operating System?

Email received 'Windows 2000'.

JoJoh, please respond in the forum.

No such operating system. Do you mean ME?

Apologies, my mistake! Sorry, I'm not familiar with 2000, is it possible the PC is overheating? Check all the fans are running.

Thanks - but when it crashes the fans go off. I have a spare PC and may just swap the hard drives.

Regards

If the fans go off, this would suggest it's the power supply that's failing.
