How can I thoroughly test the Windows 7 desktop machine I built for my dad before I give it back to him? He lives 4.5 hours away so I won't be able to easily respond to problems once he has it.

I built a Windows 7 desktop machine for my dad last year. I gave it to him and after a few months he said it began to freeze and crash. He gave the machine back to me but I have yet to replicate these issues.
Are there any software programs out there that will let me flex this machine to the point where I would find an issue before I give it back to him? I want to try to replicate the issue or find new issues before the machine ends up 4.5 hours away from me.
Finding actual component problems would be best, too. Maybe the issues are caused by a single component that I can easily replace.
