What is causing computer to lock up intermittently

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
My computer is locking up at random times. Symptoms are: clicking on app to open it, I get an hour glass with arrow show wait condition; everything except mouse cursor locks up. If mouse is left clicked 5 to 7 more times then there's a single beep and the mouse then locks up too. A reboot is necessary at this point.
