My computer is acting strange. It boots up just fine, but after sitting for a few hours not in use, it freezes up. A couple of times I came home from work to a blank, black screen, and it took a long time to get it going again. Had to cut the power off for an hour before it rebooted. Then another time it just froze while I was using it, but not the blank screen, just a "normal" freeze.

The last time I used it it was just fine. Booted fine, didn't freeze up at all, and I was able to use everything as always.
Here's the question:
Is it okay to keep using it? Is this a hard drive about to crash? Oh, that sounds so painful! LOL
Do I keep using it until I can no longer get it to work or should I bring it in now for repair? I already removed all my Bonanza stuff incase it wouldn't boot back up so I wouldn't be totally embarrased if I have to bring it in, LOL!!
This is the same puter that was just in the shop a few months ago, but not the same problem it had before.
Hope you can help :-)
