As the problem exists under both Linux and Windows, it might also be the 
NVidia proprietary driver that does some very weird things to your 
hardware, leaving it in a non-working state and/or even crashing the 
kernel. If the swapping of parts does not work (or is not possible because 
you don't have any spare parts), you could also try up- or downgrading you 
NVidia proprietary driver. I have had lockups in the past with certain 
versions of said driver.
