A little more detailed info on the problem PC would be good.

Brand/Model
Which OS are you using
When does it freeze
Any relevant error messages

OS means Operating System, which you mentioned.
Have you installed any programs that coincide when the freezes started?

It could also be a heat issue, if the inside gets too hot due to accumulated dust, it will cause freeze issues.
Hardware failure, video card, on-board video going bad will cause freeze problems and blank screen.
Memory sticks going bad will cause freezes and video issues.
Monitor going bad will do the same.
What are you doing when it freezes, surfing, playing games?
