I had exactly the same problems on a machine a few months
ago. It had also been running for about two years, then
started freezing when there was high CPU + disk activity.
It turned out that the power supply went weak (either the
power supply itself or the voltage regulators on the main-
board). Replacing PS + mainboard solved the problem.
