To can figure out what's happening (if it is a hardware of software issue), reboot and choose from grub menu the memtest entry, and see if your ram is healthy.

If yes, boot in recovery mode, and see if the freezing occurs. If not, check the log file called /var/log/dmesg and /var/log/dmesg.0. If you have possibility, save it somewhere and share it with us.

If the recovery mode also freezes, boot from a live media, and check what's happening. If that one is freezing also, you have a hardware failure (HDD or even mainboard can be faulty).
