windows xp hang

  killer7 00:19 02 Jul 05

Im running windows xp professional and the problem is that windows occasionally hangs for no reason and
i have to restart the computer by pressing the reset button. I have no idea what is causing this so i think its pointless to put up my system specs. I was wondering if anyone had a similar problem and would appreciate any help.

This does not only happens when im running a heavy application but even when the system is idle. Strange i must say because it has never happened before.
