    ur processor is a slow one...so it comes on FULL load when there r too many processes...and LED continuosly glows then...u have to wait for the processes to end...if they r too high...then ur computer will hang.
    Get a fast processor.

    It maybe due to a virus. The virus reads/writes to the harddisk and corrupts the O.S.
    You said that your O.S hangs. I definitely suspect a virus in your System.
