Default Serious Problem with PC

Hi, a couple of days ago my girlfriend fell into my PC causing mass devestation. Now when it boots up somtimes it displays nothing on screen but still boots up cos i can hear it when it boots into vista, other times it does show up on screen and i can see that its fine, but after certain amount of time (its usually within 5 mins) the pc freezes, if i leave it on i can periodically hear music for a split second (only if im playing music obviously), i was wondering what the problem could be as im not sure (i was thinking the processor could be overheating, but then why would the monitor not display?)

4000 AMD athlon 64
2 gig 400mhz ram
asus motherboard
8800gts nvidia
74 gig 10k rpm primary

Well I would open up the computer and look for any loose or missing connections, and if that doesnt work you might need to break out the warranty and bring it to a professional

Make sure and discharge static from your body before putting your hand on parts in your computer. Just place your hand on some metel.
