To see the event logs in 2k/XP you need to right click on the "My computer" Icon on your desktop and select "Manage". When the management console appears, go to on the left hand side and look for event viewer, from there you can see the 3 different event logs. There are three, Application, Security, and System. I'd look into applications, and System first, there may or may not be any entries in there, depending on the time of the lockup.
If you have the stock XP setup you will want to go to administrative tools in the Control Panel to get to the event viewer or computer management.
Basically we need to find out what's causing your computer to lockup, is the problem repeatable? Does it happen when you do something every time? If it's random, and no apparent cause to it, it's gonna be very very difficult trying to determine what it is. There are some methods for doing that, but it's a time consuming job, and frustrating as well.
