My problem is, after 5 reinstalls of the windows, I still get some problems. My PC just blocks randomly. For example, I tried to play a song now and opened Windows Media Player, the song was playing, but the whole WMP window wasn't responding. I couldn't pause/skip forward/close. I went to processes and tried to close it from there, it disappeared from the screen, but it didn't close in the processes. I then closed Skype and it didn't close in the processes as well. Then I tried with Steam and it closed without any problems. Both Skype & WMP disappeared from my desktop tho. It's like they got closed, but they were still stuck in processes.
I reinstalled my windows 5 times, so it's not software-related in my opinion. I did try different Windows DVDs.
Also if I watch a video on YouTube, my computer has a big chance of blocking. BUT, for example I play modded GTA 4 with iCEnhancer and HD mods and etc and it runs smoothly, without any problem at all. I don't know what's wrong with this computer, so please tell me how to test or if you know - what is it. I really hope it's not the motherboard, but I think that's the most logical thing to be damaged.
EDIT: I also forgot to say, that my mouse gets stuck. For example, if it's a different pointer and when I move out of a window, it should change to normal mouse, but it doesn't. And sometimes my whole mouse turns incredibly big and becomes green.
