The problem is that XP freezes on about everything: games, some applications, sometimes while scrolling, rarely on right clicks, and even Ubuntu Linux (wubi version, runs under windows). It rarely, but can, freeze on the user login screen. Heck, it even froze once while typing this thread up!
Sometimes, and only sometimes, everything freezes except the mouse pointer - if I click once or twice, a small "beep" sound occurs and it completely freezes. If I don't click, it'll just freeze without beeping. Also, a few different blue screens may come up, an often one being that the drivers got stuck in an infinite loop (usually with flash, games, etc).
I have tried ATFCleaner, CCleaner, Disk Cleanup, Driver Cleaner Tool and everything to clean out old files, etc. I installed my video cards latest drivers, there are no errors I can think of. I also used HDTune which showed up as 0.0% damaged blocks, and no yellow or red health risks.

Windows XP came pre-installed so I do not have a recovery or install disk, and I'd like to avoid reformatting if possible. If it interests you, this started since I got a new PSU but I have been told by some people that they see no problems with it.
Please, I need help, it's really annoying and frustrating!
