I am writing this to ask my fellow summoners for help. Sometimes when playing League of Legends (I estimate once every 20 games), my computer will simply lock up. I can't alt-tab, I can't alt-F4, I can't Ctrl-Alt-Del, I can't even press the numlock key and have the light toggle on my keyboard. Basically, whatever the problem is, it's blocking everything. My first thought is that I have some kind of hardware issue, but I have not had this freeze happening while doing anything other than playing League of Legends.
Does anyone else experience this? I haven't observed a pattern yet to what causes this. It's not any specific action that I do, or not that I can tell. One minute everything is fine, the next my computer is completely frozen and the only thing I can do to recover is a hard reset. Thank god for the Reconnect feature, but sometimes I can't reconnect before my team decides to surrender.
Any help at all is greatly appreciated.

I have a number of theories, including:
- Maybe the northbridge overheating (but why then not in other games?) CPU and GPU are both liquid cooled, temps are fine.
- Hard drive issue. But why not in other games? I've completely uninstalled and then reinstalled LoL. I also tried repair feature one time. I still have the issue.
- I'm on Skype at the same time. Is there a known issue with Skype?
- Is there a known issue with Razer mice? I'm using a Razer Abyssus.
