That does sound ominous.  Do you know why the fuse blew?  Perhaps you
had some mains trouble at that time, and some damage occured to your
computer.

Though it could be co-incidental, and now might be the time to
dissassemble the PC, clean out the heatsinks, check that all the plugs
and sockets are firm (disconnect and reconnect them), likewise with the
daughter cards.  If you still have freezing problems with different OSs,
then that does point to there being some kind of hardware fault that'll
need a replacement to fix.
