The locking up problem could be cause by an overheat issue.
1. turn of your computer and unplug the power cord.
2. take the side of the case off so you can get inside of the case to clean out the dust.
3. if you have a can of compressed air, spray it at the inside of the case to get the dust out, while using a vacuum cleaner, with the nozzle, to collect the dust flying around. be careful not touch any of the components with the vacuum, as to not knock anything loose.
4. grab a fan and point it towards the inside of the case. plug the power cord for the computer back on, and turn the computer and the fan on.
after your computer boots up, start playing your game and see if anything changes. ie. if the computer last long without freezing, or doesn't freeze anymore, etc.

I've also reinstalled my video adapter and made sure I had all the Windows and driver updates possible.
As an added note, this lock-up occurs even on my really old games like Starcraft. I used to have no problem running high end games like Mass Effect or Crysis.

Also check your motherboard to see if you have any blow capacitors such as these: http://www.fozziliny...ard.640x480.jpg

Could you go back into device manager and list everything that has a yellow exclamation point next to it, such as the System Interrupt Controller that you have in the above image. List your motherboard model as well please.

Please install Via 4-in-1 driver for try.
I am not sure if that will solve your freezing problem but it might fix a missing driver that you have.
