New Build Locking Up... How I Diagnose?

RE: New Build Locking Up... How I Diagnose?

I do not have a spare PSU, nor do I have a multimeter or other such tool that I can test it with.

I am new to building computers. I don't know how to test these things and isolate the problem, nor am I totally sure the PSU is the problem. What I detailed in my post was mainly a friend's hypothesis, and I am pretty confused about the whole thing.

The motherboard does not have onboard video so I can't strip it down to cpu, motherboard, and memory. Also, the freezes are random and I wouldn't know how to induce one. On the day they began, they happened a number of times, and in fairly rapid succession. As for today, I hadn't had one since yesterday afternoon, and today's was at 6:30 PM. So that would be sort of a trial and error method.

Those are all reasonable suggestions, I just don't really know what to do or how to diagnose the problem, or what I might do when we get there.
