Default dying computer

hi!

my com has been acting up on me lately, what happens is that halfway, as i'm doing something my computer will suddenly just switch itself off and go 'beginning dump of physical memory' in a frightening little way, and it does this on a rather frequent basis, like several times a day, especially if i'm doing alot of power-engaging things on my com, like downloads or whatever. but i do have space on my drives.

and then i have another com, i had it for a year but then it died due to click of death hard drive causes, and then i got my hard drive replaced like a month ago and it has had lots of problems starting up... it's windows 2000, and the little white bar things at the bottom.. it starts up a little way then completely stops, and i have to switch my com on and off several times before it goes all the way. n it doesn't have internet so i don't know whaT could be screwing it up..

now i don't know much about coms.. but i don't think the above are very good signs at all... :beard: can someone tell me what's going on with my computers..?

thanks a million (:
